Ironclads – Ironsides

Some comments for the record on the climbs we did on Ironsides:

Port Side 5.6 I lead this, putting in small nuts and cams. We then pull the rope and Ann re-leads on my gear. Enjoyable.

Alloy Madness Pitch 1 5.9 Fun overhanging start. The holds are big, and Ann is happy to nail it too.

Unknown 5.10a The most enjoyable climb I’ve done in a while! Fairly continuous, thoughtful moves, well protected. Ann follows with one hang, and loves it too.

Repeat Offender 5.8 Ann tries the lead, but can’t reach the holds beyond the first bolt. I finish it. Strange, awkward climbing with a little runout after the last bolt on insecure friction climbing. Didn’t seem worth the trouble.

  1. Nice leads! Sounds like fun. Wish I were there with you. It looks like Fall there! The leaves in our backyard trees haven’t changed colors yet. Maybe soon?
