Da Red

just got back from the red
it was a fun three day trip with Paul and Jacob

Down from the Bull Dog

day 1 - Roadside
i haven't been back to roadside in a very long time
being back there reminded me how many great climbs there are
i realized that i've forgotten to just have fun on easy climbs
to stop concentrating only on hard ones
everything was a repeat for me...
but it was still awesome!!
we warmed up on dragon slayer
got paul and jacob on wild gift!
they both enjoyed it
put up the draws on return of chris snyder
paul was the only one i convinced to go up it
walked back to ro shampo...
- jacob got it second go

Working on the best climb at the red - Cut Throat

day 2 - motherlode
warmed up on the classic Trad Sucker
- jacob flashed it
- paul got it second go
then we walked over to Chainsaw
- paul took a 30 to 40 foot fall
i tried the best climb at the red Cut Throat
- tried it twice
- felt strong on the bouldery part...
even though i didn't link it from the ground...
but did it crux second go...
- second try i got stung by a wasp at the top,
my finger swelled up...
it looked weird...
it went away after about 2 hours
walked back over to stain and buff the wood
- paul and jacob tried buff the wood...
they'll get it next time just got to work on endurance

The Motherlode

day 3 - drive-by
pretty tired
jacob was psyched but paul and i were just tired
paul and jacob warmed up on whip stocking
then they tried Maizy Mae
- they did really well on it
jacob them continued to get on Primus Noctum
- he tried it twice...
fell once on his second attempt
i climbed up Whip Stocking and down climbed it to clean it...
over all it was a good trip
on our way to drive by we stopped at bulldog...
- paul tried it the most...
did pretty well on it!
