Granite Knob

We were going to meet Roy & others for climbing today, but he had family visiting and we ended up on our own again. We had already agreed on Granite Knob, so that’s where we headed. We warmed up on Nervous Tension (5.8 ), my first time leading it. It’s a good climb for getting your attention. Then I tried Paradise (5.9), a nice hand & finger crack in a leaning book. Ann followed both in good form, struggling a bit to get my pro out on Paradise. She wanted to do Vain and Abell, a 5.8 face/arete route again, so we finished on that fun route, which has runouts that can be lessened with a green (0.5″) and red (1″) alien.
