Description

Jeff and I went to Boulder Canyon to climb on Blob Rock.  I forgot about the time change and ended up sleeping in my car for an hour in front of his house, but other than that we had a good day.  We first climbed a multi-pitch sport route called the Young and the Rackless.  I led the easier pitch 1 (5.8) and pitch 4 (5.7) while Jeff handled pitch 2 (5.9) and pitch 3 (5.9).  I really enjoyed the route and thought it was a lot of fun.  None of the climbing was very sustained.  After scrambling back down to our gear we traversed west and climbed Shimmer (5.9) a couple of times and Bolt Cola (5.10).  Jeff led Shimmer, but we both top roped Bolt Cola.
