On a very nice weekend in March of 2010, Shirley & I drove up to Darrington on a gamble that we might be able to climb something. Indeed, conditions worked out well (as did the road access) and climbed the relatively obscure Revolver
(5.10a) on the Three O’clock Rock. We were not able to do the last two pitches as the upper portion of the Rock was running with water. Some old hardware on those first four pitches have apparently been modernized since our ascent.

Attempting (unsuccessfully) to insert my cranium into my anus on pitch 1 (or 2) of Revolver...this is purely for style points and is not essential to ticking off this route (March 2010).
