Wilson Cave

This area has been on the back burner for a few years now. I found it in 2013 and started bolting. It is the steepest thing I’ve ever bolted and had quite a learning curve.

I’ve bolted three lines and Blake added a fourth project.

Pumper Prince 5.12- is the warmup and a pretty classic jug haul through several roofs. Blake did the FA our first season climbing at the cave.

Stripper Knee 5.13- was the first line I bolted and may be the crag classic. Bring your kneepads. I did the FA on one of my best days of climbing ever, a two crag, double basalt, back to back 5.13 FA day. You don’t get too many of those!

The hardest finished route at the Wilson Cave is Planking on your Girlfriend 5.13c? It is a direct (right) start to Pumper Prince and has some wild kneebar spin dyno beta.

A little edit I made of Planking on your Girlfriend

It has been a blast climbing up there and there are still some excellent lines to be done. Thanks to Mikey Robinson for the photos.
