Gunks October 11

October 15, 2009

With clearer weather the crowds were horrendous at the gunks.  Russ and I parked way down yonder at the visitor center.  Correspondingly, we decided to hike all the way to the Slime Wall. I still wanted to redpoint Wegetables and check out the Tennish again.  Wegetables went really easily and I was able to get the C3s into the cracks that I was not able to protect with my aliens, TCUs, or nuts. The Roofs went well. A #1 sinks perfectly into the first roof, a .75 above, a #2 goes high into the last one hand crack). We TR’d Tennish Anyone? and the line just below the anchor, undercling through the big roof move (I didn’t pull this).  We then headed over to 10,000 restless virgins and Brian headed up it resting at the giant roof, but finding good gear. A #4 all the way in the back of the roof, a small cam in the ceiling, a #1, #.75 in the first horizontal at the crux. The 5.9ish corner below the roof was amazing on it’s own.  We continued on and I lead Casablana, a straightforward 5.8 roof above 80ft of 5.6 face climbing (run out in sections).   We finished off the day with a party at the Taco Shack.
