Got Jack out rope gunning for me in Spearfish Canyon after working most of the day. He is really starting to like leading and is getting a lot more confident. I think he did three 8's and a 8+ including one mixed route that took a few pieces.

Holy moly I guess you two got alpine starts this morning. I climbed a couple of the routes he did yesterday and got a little weirdness in the shoulder but not too bad. Been eating ibuprofen like pez and laying off it for the most part but it seems to be getting a little better. Anita looks like misery loves company, but glad I haven't had to go through anything like you have. He up soon.

Just realized I'm the one getting the alpine start as it is two hours earlier.

Mike. I found the best thing for my shoulder was to solo miles of easy rock smoothly with stretches and controled hangs. WhenI started I could not lift my arm up above my chest. I was so bummed out that I just had to go off by myself and climb. I would walk my fingers up the rock to get my arm up there and then I could do the move. Climbed a whole bunch of 5.7 that way. these were climbs I had wired so no jerky moves or slips. Just smooth movement.

Is that the third nut? Or will the normal two nuts suffice on Sail Away? Seemed like a two nut step across to me. Lucky too, 'cause I'll probably never grow that third one lol.

Two of us were watching this guy, a guide with his client I suspect, free solo Sail Away and go through his client's placements as he pulled them. I thought that was impressive... but then as he neared the step across he went into a philosophical discussion about personal improvement in climbing and how it related to the rest of your personal life. Talk about multitasking...

Messed around on a few routes in Indian Cove this mid morning...

Hardly anyone else there...

Bailed as I was about to "Burn" (Dangling off of "El Chivo") when the NPS crew showed up right below...

Nice enough bunch...

But a hindrance to my goal...



EDITED:

"Sail Away"...

Fun climb...

Orange Route would not let me go, Mike. Now the waters have closed over it and I'll be on the granite today. May be 5.9 ready.
