Mt St Helena, Far Side -fixer upper/f.a.'r!

Great Job Jerry, Harrison, Moji and Ken!!!! delicious lunch Moji! awesome synchronistic meeting and sending Eric! and a Special Thanks to Greg Barnes and the ASCA for all the help!!

So far we fixed bolts on top of Shute Mills, The Chief and Feelin Your Oats as well as the smashed lead bolts/hangers on Feelin Your Oats.

*we also put up a few great "new" routes - some of the best are;

"Cereal Killer" 5.9 4 bolts {JD lead fa)
(left of Feelin Your Oats)

"Synchronicity" 5.11 3 bolts {CS lead fa)
(back of spire above Chief)

MSH Far Side -fixer upper/f.a.'r!

"Synchronicity" 5.11 Lead FA! Far Side MSH

I and others may have top roped this little thing a long time ago (it's hard to remember everything from 15-20 years ago). After not being at The Far Side for many years I recently went up to do some re-bolting (fixing old anchors). After we were done I scouted around for something new and exciting and this possible new route or maybe old top rope route looked like as good a lead climb as most of the other old classics up there. I had some power left in the drill that day so here it is - one of the toughest, albeit shortest climbs at The Far Side, the bouldery, pockety, fun "Synchronicity" 5.11!
(Direct/hard finish up right is 5.11+)

and don't miss the "Synchro Crack"? 5.8/9ish? TR crack to the left of Synchronicity is a lot of fun as well and has probably been top roped and might have even been led long ago or it needs to soon!?

Mt Tam Bouldering -update

Mac did a good new? V4*** problem on the Rocky Roadside Boulder and i did a new? sit start on the Campus Girl Boulder at Lakeview - i called it "Girl Power" V4/5**
