I headed up to the red this past weekend with three of the climbing kids; AJ, Andres and Lydia. It was an awesome trip. We climbed at Drive By, The Motherlode and the Chocolate Factory. I didn’t really get on anything too hard throughout the trip, mostly due to an injured finger that I’m trying to heal up some before this weekend’s competition. I figured that a lot of climbing and getting pumped would be good for it due to all the blood flow into the hands and arms. The two things that I did get on that were harder were Easy Rider (13a) at Drive By and Malice (12c) at the Chocolate Factory. Both of them were really fun and challenging. Unfortunately, I didn’t send either. I only tried each of them one time. I’m hoping to get back on them when we go back for our climbing team week trip! Now I’m headed to Boulder and then on Thursday to Vail for the Teva Mountain Games events and Climbing World Cup. Can’t wait!
