The Ginger Assassin

With the yurt project winding down, I have been fortunate to get out the last month and develop new routes. Of course, this is all possible because the weather has been amazing and temps are a little warmer on the lake bed. Within the genre of climbing (in my opinion) there is nothing more fulfilling than the process of developing new climbs. Searching the cliff for a new line, rapping down to scout potential, cleaning, climbing, more cleaning, working beta with friends, and sending. This process has been fueling my motivation during the last month. Below is a picture of a new route that is on climber's right of Long Point proper. I named it "The Ginger Assassin", and the name comes from getting sandbagged on a relatively easy climb out with a heavy pack. (The red X's are bolts)
