When we arrived, the temps were perfect, near 70 degrees, sunny, not too hot, not too cold. We first blasted up "Not advertised" a 500 foot tall, 5 pitch 5.9. Oh ya. The views of Grey eagle and Shuteye ridge were terrific.

|Well, it is Easter|
We opted for the walk off, and hiked down a drainage. We noticed some cool purple flowers growing right in the decomposed granite. One of the best things about climbing this time of year is all the spring wildflowers! There are not there very long, so it was great to see them in their full blooming glory
|How are these growing in the gravel?|
On our way down we caught a glimpse of another couple climbing the route. Nice to see other climbers out enjoying this amazing day! We only have so much time on this Earth, every second should be devoted to doing what we are passionate about. Don't want to waste my life sitting on the couch!
