Took T-Pain out to First Creek to climb "Critical Cams" - his first taste of proper 5.10 wyde climbing. He did not enjoy.

It's been a while since I have climbed much wide, so it was nice to get to break out the fat cams and wiggle. Jeans + t-shirt a must, however, all of this bouldering and sport climbing has gotten me soft on the approach!

I thought the crux was the 1st pitch on pump factor. It gets steeper as you go and seems to lean back a bit @ the top. Solid 4+ maybe 5- INMOP I felt that P2 was easy 4 or 4- super fun rt. have fun@ the Lake

Got in five sport pitches at N Table, mostly short but a couple longer, stouter ones.

got over to devils tower. It was 50 but very overcast so we bailed and did some BC skiing. Then went back in the pm and got a couple of pitches in.

solo tr's at Prescott, AZ. 70 degrees, sunny. Walked everything on the "time zone" wall in my tennis shoes. Feeling pretty cocky, as it was my first time off the couch in over ten years on named established routes, (even if they were 5.6). The only other stuff I've climbed has been no-name stuff I've developed near my house.

The next day tried a "5.9 classic! A 1968 testpiece" according to the guide book. I chickened out just above where the pic was taken. I don't trust the mini-trax tr stuff the same way I do a belayer. Felt like I was getting sucked into the crack, just bailed. Disgusting, F'n baby. Left my shoes at the base of the route after I cleaned my gear and walked down the trail. D'oh!
