More information:
I've been climbing for awhile now, and I supposed I've climbed a lot of stuff. I think I've reached the point where I'm considered one of the "old" guys, in that everyone I see at the gym or crag seems to be getting younger than me. I like to look at pretty pictures and discuss training, which is necessary to climb hard at my age.

A nice view of Thunder Ridge from near the top of the Brown Wall on The Spark.  Mike Anderson nears the end of the crux section on The Spark. These bolts were added after the FFA because my drill battery died on the FA, and I'm impatient.  ...and be ready for some slabbin'.  You'll need to mind your footwork to have any hope of sending The Spark.  The cruiser climbing and rest before the crux on The Spark - 13c.
