Me on the easier lower half of Always Keep It Load...


This climb has some very fun and technical climbing. I remember using so weird foot-tec to keep me in the small holds at the crux. I also remember this route having some really cool pockets, like Freeform at Shelf or Drug Enemy at Sinks.

This alcove is a good hideout for when it is hotter than a pistol. When I was first here it was 110F at the post office in town.


This route is located in the alcove just beyond the first set of routes.

Great route! Really hard clip for the 5th bolt. The crux is clipping this bolt. Not sure if this hold has broken over time. This whole area is great. The bolting is a bit more spacey than most of TS.

^^The clips are all off of good stances with darn good hands. This is truly a well bolted route. The moves in between however will test your gumption. With a 1 minute approach there is no reason to miss this one. Great, but a little sharp.
