I agree with you, j_b, do Carla's Traverse. I saw where the traverse took off while doing MJ Dihedral but passed it up then ended up losing the route. It looked like a nice steep slab pitch.


The MJ dihedral continues but I couldn't see any evidence of climbing (everything was coated with that black lichen) and looked tough, so I angled off to the left from the dihedral, ended up on top of a real skinny pedestal, then made a go for it half-ass lunge across a featureless face to a big horizontal flake (oftentimes one can run across something that one cannot walk across) . From there just traverse the flake into Orbit. I was probably 75 feet above Carlas Traverse. I had two others with me and both fell on the lunge move... a testiment to "the leader never falls" theory.

to do:


*Go fart around in the Eldorado-Klawatti plateau region with skis.

*Finish doing every route at Midnight (tr, lead, or hangdog in my lycra!)

*Find more bouldering tucked into the woods for after work stuff around N. Bend. (There's gotta be a lot more out there?)

*Ice-Find a secret reliable stash close to home?

*Sleep in my own bed all the time?

*Avoid finger injuries from peer pressured bouldering sessions.
