Trip ReportKor/Ingalls Castleton Tower 5.9
The plan was to drive out to Castle Valley and camp out to get an early start. I didn't get my sh#t together and the thought of sleeping in my bed sounded more appealing.
I suggested to Marie that we stay in town and just drive out in the morning. She was cool with that and went out to get some evening pitches in with some friends.
I ended up at the bar and made an unwise choice to sign off with a couple of shots after a few beers. Bad idea.
7 am and Marie is knocking on my door. We pack up and head out.
On the approach the hangover started kicking in. I tried to keep on a happy face.
Helping Slack to the base.
When we got to the base I was rather pukey. Marie suggested I take a moment so I went and layed down.
An hour later we start. Marie wants to lead the whole thing. Sweet.
Marie likes to climb but not so good on getting new shoes.
The first pitch did not help my hangover. Marie set off on the second pitch and cruised it.
The second pitch really didn't help my hangover.
We finally made it to the summit!
Marie led all the pitches. I puked on every pitch but not the summit.
Still having a hard time.
It was a fun trip Thanks Marie.
