The weather this Summer in Wisconsin has been a climber’s dream.

 Temps have rarely gotten higher than 80 and many perfect sunny days in the 70’s have been there for the taking which is a far cry from normal.  Of course, I haven’t been able to take much advantage of these conditions due to various injuries, but I finally got to Devil’s Lake on Saturday with Mrs. Narc and Peter to check out a few of the newly re-discovered boulder problems I’ve been reading about.

My main goal for the day was the problem Anchorpoint (V6/7) which I had walked by on previous occassions but never attempted.  After a lackluster warm-up that included my getting bouted on a neighboring V3, we quickly turned our attention to Anchorpoint.

Climbing a bulging prow with a series of sharp vertical crimps, Anchorpoint is really a must do.

 Peter and I worked out beta appropriate for our respective heights and the sendtrain soon commenced.  Here are some photos from our efforts:

After the sendtrain on Anchorpoint we checked out several other areas of the park, and Peter secured Employee of the Day honors with impressive quick sends of Venus Rising (V7) and Perfect Medium (V8/9).

The temps on Saturday barely made it to 60, and Fall appears to be fast approaching.  It should be another great season of climbing in Wisconsin!

    Nice job taking your hat off between moves. Very Sharma-esque. Or maybe you were squeezing so hard your hat flew off? That’s happened to me before. 🙂
