Matthew started the day off by hanging draws on Tower Route (5.10a), we pulled the rope and I clipped my way up. On the way down I rigged a directional through the top bolt on Dakota Farms Cheese (5.11a), so that we could finish warming-up with a quick TR lap on that. While I was taking my burn on DFC, Clayton showed up. Matthew and I figured we would have the place to ourselves but it seemed that Clayton and Skyler (who was still on his way) had the same idea. Clayton took a quick warm-up lap on the rope we had hanging.
I took a total of three goes on Whiskey, all on lead:
- I went bolt-to-bolt through the first four bolts then lowered off
- I climbed straight through to the third bolt, and then went bolt-to-bolt to the top (my best effort to-date)
- I botched stuff down low, hung on the third bolt and lowered off the fourth bolt
Clayton and Skyler each took a total of three or four goes on it too and I managed to get a decent shot of Clayton on the route:
