Girls Crushing Way Lake

Lots of problems getting repeated lately, and since the current rage is all about FFA's (First Female Ascents), here are a few female firsts at Way Lake.

Lisa sending Meadow Roof SDS (V9).

I squeaked out the FA of the compression line to the right last Thursday and Wills and Lisa got the 2nd and 3rd ascents on their next tries. It's V8ish and I called it Black Buddha.

Lisa also did Meadow Face (V9), Karate Kid (V8/9), and Two Dragons (V9); all of which might be harder since I can't grade anything accurately.

Some new friends came over from the west side this weekend and climbed way too much stuff for me to keep track of. And since I didn't do a very good job of taking pictures, this is all you get. Beth and Lyn sending the scary Knife Dance (V7).

I'll try to post a link to more pictures from this weekend if they end up on the internet somewhere.

Other non-female happenings:

Eric had an amazing day on Saturday sending Meadow Face (V9), Karate Kid (V8/9), and Ugly Duckling (V9).

Wills did two link-ups on the Dragon boulder. Ass Backwards (V9ish) climbs from the start of Morpheus into the end of Two Dragons and Dragon Ass (V10) climbs most of Two Dragons and then traverses left into the second half of Morpheus. Confused yet?

Wills, Isaac, and I worked on a really cool project for a while today. It has several V10ish moves in a row and Wills thinks it will be V9. He's not very good at math.
