I can't help but reply. This is an unbelievably excellent place to climb. Quality climbing, unique individuals, and controlled technical movement make this an awesome environment. If you have the desire to improve your climbing, this is the place to do it. Hope to see you there! rockband.gif

I would be totally down if I had anything to do with Olympia. Unfortunately I am not from Olympia, I do not live in Olympia, I never wanted to live in Olympia, I have never lived in Olympia, I've only been to Olympia a few times, and the only person I know in Olympia is Off_White. I'm simply not associated with Olympia. I live in Seattle, which, while in the same state as Olympia, is not Olympia. It is a completely seperate city. Before then, I lived on the Olympic Peninsula, which is spelled similiarly to Olympia, but is not Olympia either. It can be confusing, and if it is to you use this chart:

 

Olympia does NOT equal Olympic Peninsula

 

I'll try to come down there sometime this summer and climb that place out, but since I'll be scooping all the women, most likely I won't be popular. I'm just warning you.

UPDATE: 4/19/06

 

Things look alright for tonight, though notably Hercules is too wet, and there is some dampness on top for a few routes.

 

Any of you regulars have a cordless drill? Mine's down for a battery rebuild, and I have some anchor work I'd like to do.

Things were great last nite, Off! The rock is so grippy this time of year. Everything seems just a little bit easier than on those hot summer nites. Plenty of daylight to get 6-8 pitches in. A grand start to the season!

Looks great for tonight. There's a new dedicated anchor for Squirt Theory, but watch out for drill dust at the top if you lead it. I also put in a directional for a new project right of Calvin & Hobbes, I'll set up a rope when I get there (probably not until 5:30 for me tonight)

5/3/2006 Update: The left side is now dry, the only wet routes are four in the vicinity of the central drainage. Team Ropegun, Ed and Duke, are down in Red Rocks this week.

5/31/06 Chance of rain this afternoon, but odds are things will be fine. The cliff is surprisingly dry considering the recent rains.

6/5/06 - Squeezed in a little climbing last week before the rain shut us down. Prognosis looks good for this week, but I'll be out of town. Ya'll have fun, okay? wave.gif

Merde, sorry you won't be there Off. I'm hoping to get there anytime from 3:30 on, but without partner. Anybody else getting there early?

hi all, i'm new to olympia from scotland and would love to check out this crag, but i don't have a car. Is there anyone in olympia that would be willing to give me and my girlfriend a ride down on wednesday (21st) or next wednesday? We would be very grateful and would pitch in with gas money. Hope to see you guys down at the crag soon!
