Fabrice, Peter and I climbed a lot of hot routes. Then we watched The Warden and Mike climb – they were super hot.
Ron showed up for a rare cameo appearance and we heard more about his Black Hills climbing trip. All photos here.
The video below is of The Warden climbing “Paradigm Shift..” (Normally, a 5.13. In the sun, a 5.18D) What a guy!
Couple of things I re-learned today:
- Before and after the crux, the climbing is not so hard. (Why is that?)
- On a hot day, the bugs stay in the shade.
- When you’re drenched in sweat, even your feet slip around in your shoes making it harder to smear.
- Drinking beer when you’re dehydrated is highly efficacious.
