Good weekend. Ruby and I hiked Devils Head. She is a good hiker.

Happy birthday Ruby.

We had about 850 staff attend our staff council summer event. Farrand Field before, during setup and during the event.

Today jack freed a crack and face line on the east summit of inner outlet we had been working on for the past few days. It is a beautifully steep had and finger crack that ends at a horizontal twenty feet from the top. I had aided the line about 10 years ago and placed the only bolt just past the last piece of gear and then free climbed the last twenty feet for a ground up ascent that went A1/2 with a traditional 5.8 Needles finish. I know it wasn’t in the best of Needles style but if you are looking for a great new addition to the the outlets try this route. It in the huge chimney just downhill from the gill problem up from practice rock. It is easily accessed from the conn route on the east summit of inner outlet if you would want to check it out on tr as I added a bolted belay at the top several years ago.
