Climbing At Arcola

Peter, Tan & I climbed some new routes at Arcola on Wednesday. We also discovered a new type of chickenhead to sling - a bottlehead? A bottleneck? Don't know exactly what to call it, but here's a photo of me hanging off of it.

New Routes We Bolted At Arcola

Getting down to the river. 
Wednesday, we climbed and bolted a new route at Arcola. (Some photos here.) There are now only 3 routes but room for more. We're letting Peter decide on naming the routes - since he's developing the area - but Marianna suggested names with "Cola" in them. Since it is at Arcola.
