Wet Denim Daydream, Fall 08
« on: December 05, 2008, 10:05:39 am »
My friend Erik and I decided to give WDD a go at the end of September, so, I'm a bit late with posting a TR. Better late than never! Perfect weather + fun wall partner = good times on this steep wall. The hammer remained in the piggy, and overall, we thought it was a quality route worth doing---such spectacular position! Ok, good, now here are the photos:

Here we are ready to go.


There she is! A haulbag and other stuff was chlling on Roulette with no climber....???


Yes, pigs fly.


Made it up to Ahwanee Ledge and relaxed.


I decided to fix P5 with the remaining daylight.


Higher on P5.


P5 fixed, time for some beers.


Ohh look, what do you know, another very steep pitch, P7. We are heading for the obvious roof splitter above.


A soloist on the WF makes Ahwanee Ledge....kind of looks lonely.


Colorful rock to the right of the WF route.


Erik "on belay".


Erik was psyched to just barely makes the shade. It's a good thing his helmet is protecting something.....


Self portrait.


I thought the entire route is worth climbing for this 15' section. It is unreal!


Erik dodges the sun once again!


Halfway out....it feels weird doing multiple moves without ever touching the rock with your body. The best part is that the cleaner gets the same experience!


Looking back in.


This is what it looks like from the lip of the roof. You couldn't wipe the smile off my face if you tried. Ok, so mabey I was a little nervous :).


Erik cleaning the last pitch.


Peek-a-boo!


Victory!


Thanks for viewing.....1 more brewing....will post soon.

Peace,

Brian S.

Nice work on that, Bri. No expiration date on a good TR, man = ]

Good to do the Layback with you earlier this year. Cheers and thanks for putting this up.
Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.
