I had a perfect day out at French's Dome near Mount Hood. It was warm enough for t-shirts but shaded enough to not be too hot while climbing. Preston "Rope Gun" Corless put up all the routes. I cleanly top roped Tin Tangle (5.8), Do It Again (5.9), Alpha Centauri (5.8), and Straw Man (5.8) . I had to do some serious hang dogging but I completely enjoyed grunting my way through Silver Streak (5.10B). The routes are all very ledgey and worked well for my fingers. Tomorrow I'm heading back to Beacon Rock to do a variation of the SE Face.
