Haycock warm and wet

November 16, 2009

Haycock boulder problems are best climbed on cold crisp days when the diabase will eat your flesh.  Russ and I headed out anyway after a long rain on Saturday. We got to the mountain and headed up in unseasonably warm weather, upper 60s.  Most of the problems were wet. We went to the Glass Wall and I sent the easy warm ups with a bit of chalk, brushing and sharmashoes.  We worked Catching Flies and Funky Butt Love but without success.  I think I’ve figured out some reasonable beta for Catching Flies.

I was a little saddened to see someone had spray painted the Glass Wall with blue paint. In fact, overall, this side of the mountain has seen lots of graffiti, spray paint and random trail markings.  The mountain was popular with hikers and families on Sunday. A few people bothered to BBQ on top of Top Rock.  Between the Climber’s Chalk and Redneck’s tagging I wouldn’t be surprised to see this area closed.  Haycock mountain resides on State Game Land, so I don’t see it being closed to the public.
