Noice! Here's a little story, i put it on my fb, so sorry for the repeat..

a little story... been housebound updating my website. Going stir crazy and wanting to climb the walls. Went on long hike in the preserve last night ~ there is a feature i solo up sometimes in the daytime ~ i found it a year ago after being so inspired by a Peter Croft/Lisa Rands video. It's easy enough, but interestingly, always feels 5.0 or 4th class on the way up, but the way down it feels 5.4... last night it felt SO easy on the way up, feeling strong! but wow what a contrast on the way down... at night with a headlamp, sometimes the rock edges would obscure the light, blocking the view of my feet. Therefore I went slightly differently than I went up... let's just say, that got me the adrenaline dose I was looking for~while i felt completely in control~it was still a lot more intense than going up! I've got it completely dialed in now, but I am glad during the going down portion, I could not see how high up i was (though i could see Asia's reflective eyeballs looking up attentively at me from the ground)... Soloing ~ it's a completely different animal!

Good story!

Soloing at night can create surprising results. heh. Routes you have dialed just aren't what you might expect then.. reminds me of a scary moment I once had.

Climbing?...I'm over it. Bowling is the new thing to do. It's cheaper than climbing, safer, more fun, and you don't get so sweaty and dirty.......Climbing.....OUT
Bowling.......IN!

Daphne and I had a very nice long weekend. Two days at the Leap and one up at Luther Rock. I feel like I got a good workout, esp from the trudge up to Luther Rock. We had the place to ourselves for the day, and even after it came into the sun at noon the air temps felt great - not too hot at all.

Despite intermittent rain and "bad conditions" due to heat and humidity, I still managed to redpoint Enigma (5.13b) at the Riverside Quarry today. There were more people than usual there, perhaps looking for rock other than Tahquitz to pull down on at the moment? Hope you all got out as well!
