Am I Spoiled Or What?

I went to VE on Monday night. It’s super crowded at night! “Duh?” say those of you who climb mostly at night. Well, I realized how spoiled I am climbing during the day. It’s quite typical during the day, that no one is up in the bouldering area. Or, at most, 2 people. It’s quite usual that no one is doing any leading in the pit. Or, again, maybe one group. It’s unusual to wait for any specific route. Also, because my posse wasn’t there, I had to rely on the kindness of strangers for a belay. Asking strangers for a belay, makes a Chris Sharma 5.15.route look like a piece of cake.

On the positive side, there are lots of people watching. There is more of a “buzz” with that many people; lots of energy in the air. And, I guess it’d be a way to make new friends. But, who needs that?

We have a great climbing group, I'd hate for
anyone to go wondering off.
