A beautiful day in Southern Arizona.
Minus the attack by aggressive Africanized bees.

We know you secretly love the cold. It certainly makes the garden grow.

Too many of these thread titles look like illiterate people wrote them. A question that ends with an exclamation point looks dumb.

The rolling clove hitch aid solo sucked. Especially with no aiders. Ordered me up some stuff like I see y'all sportin.
Another mini traxion rig.

Figgered easing back in off a ten year hiatus maybe solo tr is better'n solo aiding anyway.
Found a virgin blob of rock, and it took every sling and both cordolettes to get me an anchor rigged, but it finally came together.


Walked around to the bottom and thought "I wonder if I can even climb this? It looks 5.10!"

Uh, more like 5.6.

It was good though. It's been a long time since I built an anchor, rappelled, or climbed rocks at all. Felt good, even if it was 29 degrees with a steady 25mph wind.

Trying to get used to the new gear, I must've weighted the rope about 100 times "just to see", and transitioned to rappelled at 10', 15', 20', 35'... Never did climb up and touch the anchor. Everything felt creaky... The face holds, my placements, the new unfamiliar gear.

Still, it's a start.

Speelyei,
Hope you ordered yourself a proper chest harness.

Jim, how is the ice?

Tradman I had to take off the glove to be able to take the selfie. Did get out yesterday and did some ice climbing with Jack. I think it got onto the low single digits around here, but that was the first time in 91 hours above zero. That is by far the longest cold stretch I remember in twenty years of living in Spearfish. Regardless we grew a lot of ice in the last week so we should be good to go for the next four months.

Amen to that Dingus.

10b4, no, I didn't. Since the slings just position the mini traxion, I figure the rig I've got is safe, and I didn't notice that they were there.
