As Promised, I went bouldering last night. It did not go as planned however. First, I discovered that I would not be able to visit the Yabo Roof due to a road closure of sorts. Shitty. Second, as I was hiking out to my second choice destination (in sandals) I stubbed my toe, not once, but twice! The first time I poked a little hole in my big toe, the second time I broke the nail off! Double shitty! Third, upon arriving at the boulder I realized that I had forgotten my chalk bag in Davis so I was forced to walk back to the car and retrieve my smaller chalk bag, which you can see dangling in the photo above.
The photo is of me on a nice problem called "Black Widow". Apparently there is a direct finish to it but I could not see those holds in the dark. Also, I was informed today that a hold had recently broken off but I had never seen the problem before so I'm not sure if it broke off the original line or the direct variant, "Black Mamba". Anyway, its good fun and worth the short walk out there.
