Cool you got to check out the course. The punch by the Indian statue was no joke. Nice job getting it. At first I though ,' no way it's on top of that'' but saw the ribbon and eventually the punch. There was this perfect root handhold to get up but I had to use most of my height to get up and down.

I hemmed and hawed for a long time, thought really hard about leaving that one, but eventually found a spot that I could scramble up by holding on to the saplings that were growing in the crevices. To get down I had to lay on my stomach and inch down the way I got up. Adrenaline was definitely pumping by the time I finished!

Yeah, that was a gnarly point, especially for those nailing it at night. I set it in the rain on Wednesday morning, and was more than a little bit worried about slipping.

Thanks again for your help, Sandy - you and Karl made our clean-up so much easier! I went out this afternoon and gathered the remaining CPs from along Lincoln and Kelly Drive, and the couple that were left in the park.
