So on my first days East Mtn., East Spur, and North Mtn. I found problems that I thought were difficult but well within my abilities to climb and relatively quickly at that. I've returned to each once apiece and I have no ticks to show for it, Falling at the end of each. Only one of these features a hard move at the end. I'm just running out of gas. It's cool though, this is what I wanted, longer problems on steep rock.
Here's my best/worst attempt on one of these problems yesterday.
Perhaps my power sandwich should be replaced with something similar to Kevin's? Mine consists of Nutella, peanut butter, and marshmallow paste, Kevin's has veggies and turkey and other healthy stuff. I'm open to suggestions.
In other news, Peter has left the desert for temperate California and his J-O-B. Before he left he had a couple of stand out days and even started getting a little greedy! Peter dispatched two projects from the previous year "Warm-up Roof" and "Dragonfly" as well as flashing his first v5, "Hobbit in a Blender" all in one day. On his last climbing day he finished another project, "Lobster Claw" and then began having thoughts of grandeur saying, "I think I could flash it!" referring to a shitty v7.
