Jurassic Park Climbing


A group of climbing friends and acquaintances enjoy a day of Vedauwoo adventure together at the Jurassic Park wall.

The day’s routes:

Lawyer on the Toilet 5.8 – my only lead, one or two good offwidth moves.

Get Up That Tree 5.8 – climb the scary chockstones.

Rowdy Joe Bad 11b – cranky slab on crimpers and small edges.

Flake-o-saurus 10c – proves to me that my jamming needs work! I manage not to vomit when I reach the top after many toprope falls.

Slot-a-saurus 5.9+ – really great offwidth to a finger crack with several bulges. A must-lead-next-time.

  1. ah! i was on the phone with randy when i was checking this out (scoffing, of course). i was reading him the tick list. of course, we both got hung up on the 11b thing.

    so i was like “I’ll go through the pics and see if i can find it”. “Toprope, toprope, toprope… OMG.. Ann is leading an offwidth.”

    yes, it do look like that. i was like “Jeez, that absolutely does not make me want to get back into climbing.” that pic is rad.

  2. my point is, i shoulda known that it was not being led.

    what the hell ARE you doing in that pic? looks like yer placing gear.

  3. I’m pulling up another rope, to set a TR. And, I’m UNPLACING gear while going up. And my TR is in the crack (with the gear that I’m unplacing.) Get it? Anyway, I could totally lead that climb, so shut up.
