Rock Climb: Millennium Wall, Frenchman Coulee

Went to Vantage on Sat with Mike M. to check out Millennium Wall. Heard it was a good spot and less crowded than Sunshine Wall. It was a perfect spring day: sunny and no wind - I was comfortable in a long shirt. Millennium is shorter than Sunshine, but other than that it has some of the best 5.10's I've ever lead at Frenchman Coulee. Other than our first climb - Taking it Easy (5.9) - every climb was very enjoyable. Highlights were:
  • Human Corn 5.10a: a classic - super techy footwork - my fav!
  • Heel Higher Crescent 5.10a: the neat crescent shaped jug is key.
  • Sub-Atomic Lunge Blast 5.10b: balancy start w/ a cool undercling move at the crux higher up.
