One of my goals for the summer is to climb the 15 hard rockies classic multipitch sport climbs featured in Gripped Magazine. Me and my buddy Tom Anderson had planned to get on the ultra classic Blue Jeans (13b) today on Yam, but the sun and late start discouraged us. Instead we hopped on Silent Auction (5.12c), a new route fully equipped by Greg Tos. This was a long, steep, nine pitch route sustained at 5.12, with numerous cryptic cruxes. Spacey bolts and dubious rock made it a bit spicey!
