Hmm, I didn't know there was great bouldering 20 minutes from Spokane

Jake Dolence with perfect execution of an all points off downward dyno...note the peace sign that says "peace out bitches I'm jumpin"

Some of the better photos from the Saturday session. A big group went up and put up a bunch of new stuff, and lots of the other problems saw repeats. You can click on the photo for a full screen version, most people probably know that, I just figured it out yesterday....

Conrad Piper-Ruth on The Corridor V9

Found some new stuff too, over past Collective Mind, this big fin of rock that starts nearly horizontal and slaps out a bulge on a bunch of non-holds to a pumpy finish. You get to do this move, a super tensiony heel hook madness stab to a backwards upside-down gaston pinch. Dopeness has been achieved.

Soul to Squeeze V10

Jake Dolence hung a rope and cleaned this 60 degree overhanging roof crack, and Conrad, he and I all sent it within an hour. Jake topping out uber-pumped at about 22' on Ponyology, V6

Projection: SendingKaiya doing her best to find a viable intermediate on Polish Pimp Slap V5

John Lipke cleaned up this little arete in the main area and it turned out to be pretty good. Pull on, cross, match and then Yaaarrr!!!
John does his best to burst a blood vessel on a unnamed V4

Some other shots of Conrad on a really cool shouldery problem right behind Collective Mind

I'll find out what the problem is and what it is named and put that up too..
