This was my first climb of the year, and I was experiencing again in all its perfection the joy of alpine life, a joy unparalleled, pervading body and soul, different from all other human joys, compounded of countless almost indefinable sensations – sensations begotten of changing scenes, the lightness of the air, the solitude which is about us and the peace which is within us; of the sense of height, the expectation of danger, the thrill of freedom…”

Ughs, the roof won. Or maybe the roof eased up, and the draws won. I jumped on Air Ride Equipped six times this weekend, and kept getting killed by pump and terrible clipping.
So excited to head to Kentucky with Chaz, Arielle, Sharon & Joe tonight. This is the last weekend of the season to climb at The Red. I planned to go a couple weeks ago, but got hit with the flu.
I would love to send Air Ride Equipped in Muir Valley. Last trip, first time leading, I got shut down at the roof, which is silly because usually I don’t have too much trouble pulling roofs. Well, this weekend, the roof is going down.
I can’t wait to get my hands on real rock again!
