Some days I wake up here in Tucson and go outside to have my coffee. Something about the lighting, the calmness in the air, and I just know.
But I can't grab my damp wetsuit from the patio railing and suit up at home. I can't run down to the garage and apply a nice fresh layer of purple lable or some tri flow to the rusted chain.
Mesquites don't show wind like palms and there is no smell of salty air.
I won't be riding up to the bluff this morning.
But my spidey senses still tingle, and I know the boyz are there, on it.


I used to be on it.

It's okay.
I will console myself by removing the last flakey scab from the back of my hand, remembering that jam and the beauty of the place.
I'll console myself with my growing hit list. I see my foot twisting into a crack on Jah Man. I feel the exposed glory climbing atop the Rockefellows. I am watching my dog bounce up the approach to Magnolia.
I am topping out on the last first ascent of the season.



I will remind myself that I will surf and climb til the day I die.
And that is a fortunate life.

Great post drljefe!

Just had a refreshing rock fix of Eldorado and Platte climbing with my old Colorado gang.

The past week has been the best surfing that I can remember.
For day and days it has been glassy and double overhead in the sets.
I have been surfing Noriega's which is right in my back yard every day except yesterday when it got too big to hold up.
I drove down to Kanaha and surfed 4 delightful hours at glassy head and a half with one of my all time favorite surf partners Debbie Brown. She just killed it!
It seem to be closed out all the way down the North Shore so I think I will go out to Peahi and sit on the cliff above Jaws and watch the show.
Here's a video of Shane Dorian at Jaws yesterday.

Olaf,
Looks like Shane paddled that wave? Really nice ride...

Flat as Lake Michigan with no wind here in Monterey Bay...

Hey, I've been to that lake (that is, the one mentioned in the comment superior to this one). Long before I could stand up on a surfboad. My mom was born in Ironwood, Michigan. Verrry cold there.

Mouth of the Black River rocks.

Poor old Kaw Liga hung with us. Is it any wonder?

I feel that surfing is restorative, while climbing is a bit more aggressive, relative to ones skill level and concentration within each. I often notice that they both go well hand in hand. My climbing enhances my surfing, while my surfing benefits my climbing. As my surfing has evolved, my climbing has co-evolved. As Charles earlier said, its time allocations can be difficult to accommodate. I spend so much time doing one or the other that they infringe on eachother. Its difficult to fully pursue both simultaneously.

But hell, at a place like this why not try.
