High Hopes for Climbing

Friday, As I was grunting my way up that epic crack by the name of "Relentless" I came across a tiny ant dragging a large wasp straight up the rock. At first I thought he was mocking me! But then I realized he just had high hopes. Here is Frank Sinatra singing the song

Here is an article about why ants can carry so much. They can carry 10-50 times there body weight. Of course Richard can do that and I think Ron can too - as seen in an earlier post. I wish I had a photo but I failed at taking photos that day ;). But this one is pretty good. If I saw this at the crag I would KNOW I was being mocked!

And to her credit, Lisa carefully avoided crushing that ant as she continued up the climb.
