Taming the Cougar

A few months back we found an awesome crag just down the street from our house (Cougar Crag). My wife, friends, and I have put in hours out there. Blazing a trail was the first of many task we had to accomplish. Once we found our way around, setting up anchors was next. We found a few good bolts and a few rusty ones. Chalking up the holds was goal three. Setting foot on a route that hadn't been climbed in months or maybe a year was cool, but challenging.

This is my wife Jenny on the Cougar face. It is a mix of 5.10 variations and comprised of thin feet and small crimps. Tons of fun and my first outdoor 5.10 onsight.

This is an awesome boulder that I sent a few months ago. Its a pretty fun project. Few of the crew are getting close. Taylor Sather has the second ascent. We believe it's a v4.
