Joe’s Valley

Posted on 09. Apr, 2009 by in Joe's Valley

The past few days I have been in Joe’s Valley. The first two days were hot, and I spent some time hiking around. I stumbled upon a nice black boulder with a few hard problems on it. I cleaned off several lines, but nothing has been completed yet. This block is across the river from the Mine Cart pull off, about 200yds up the hill, somewhat hidden in the trees.

Here are some pics from the first two days of climbing.

    I didn’t do, very classic but very scary. Kevin was wondering if this was a first ascent? I wasn’t sure and thought I would ask around.

    It was cleaned and chalked up. I thought it was scary too, but Kevin got up there with no problem.

    It was cleaned last year but I pulled a few flakes off when I did it. If no one’s claiming it then I will. Lighten Up, FA.

    I cleaned it up on rappel a couple weeks ago, but I couldn’t convince anyone to spot me on it. It’s an FA for sure, as I pulled a bunch of loose stuff off the middle of the problem while cleaning it. I didn’t get to scrub the topout very well, it was hard to get to where I had my rope setup. Fine work on the send!
