I woke up early, made some coffee, fed the fish, super psyched to have the whole day off.

OH NO! What will I do today. There is no hope of it being dry today. My one day off. Time to study, nothing like the multiple choice to keep the climbing bug at bay.
Practice tests!

He wanted to go to the gym. YES! I said. Plastic > Multiple Choice. He picked me up in his sweet van.

The approach wasn't too bad, until we had to find parking. Wow that took FOREVER! I thought all the mission hipster's had bicycles? Where DID all these cars come from?

Yeah, my partner was pretty impressed with me.
He's trying to act cool.  Like he isn't intimidated by me.  As if.

Then it was time to recharge. Really get into some recovery eating, you know? So that's what we did. Straight to La Taqueria.

you went to da GYM??? Maybe you were not aware how dangerous they are. Just recently, two prominent climbers broke their legs. Not to mention the omnipresence of Staph.

STAY OUT DOORS!!!

BE SAFE!!!

Impressive climbing to say the least. Regan has some serious competition. Plastic is a truly unforgiving environment. Great pics and inspiration. Stellar TR. I see where the route goes clearly but the approach info seemed a bit murky.

How did you find parking?
