Buttermilks Feb-15

February 25, 2010

We had some bagels and cream cheese and rations for lunch so we headed straight to starbucks for coffee and then onward to the Buttermilks.  The Buttermilks are home to some of the most famous boulder problems in the country, the Peabodys, Mandala, Evilution.  The Peabodys stand over 45 feet tall and are as impressive as any climber that dare top them out.  Other boulders in the area also stand tall and the decent options can be just as intimidating as the climb.  We worked a few problems in the buttermilk main, the names escape me. We spent a lot of time working a V4 arête in the sun and some wetter problems. The green wall dripped from snow melt, the temperatures were in the upper 60s in the sun.  We finished the day working on the V4 Iron man traverse, which I failed to link, the crux follows a 25 ft overhanging traverse. When the sun dipped below the mountains we hightailed it out, back to town.  We ate at Whisky Creek, making the happy hour where everything is 1/2 off. I got the Chicken Pot pie and wouldn’t recommend it. Everything else was fine I guess.  We also killed a bit of time in the gear store before heading back to the camp site.
