Gripped!
Way off the deck
never mind one wrong move
I will catch a wreck
Inner voice says don’t trip
Can’t afford to contemplate what would happen if I slip
At my belay
killa flakes are falling
She’s dodging
What a darling
Hart throbbing
Stalk up on Courage!!!As I chalk up
Got to cough upA DYNO Die NO!Trying not to hang Hung over Cause I’m a wino Dino A-send-a-sourus
Basic instinct Survival Summon mySpirit animal velociraptor
Make the next move
Or this will be
The last chapter
Staring down extinction
Pumped
Feeling depletion
Digging down deep
Dancing with fatigue
Will I pull this next trick out of my sleeve Angels and devils all around me
Taking bets
On my soul
As I seek the next hold
To my left
Raptors and rattle snakes
Battle it out for
life or death
To the riiiight
Yucca spears trying to stab me
Cat claws vying to grab meThis granite is chossySteady my nervesTake a breath
Run out way past my last piece
Sketchy at best

Bouldering at Giant Rock
Grab jug at top
Hold break
No rope to take
Hit the ground
Whats the matter
Calcaneus shattered
I'm a sport climber now

7k climb yearning
8k lungs burning
Hiked me a mile
To a f'ng choss pile
Time to go
Lay some pro
Hand slip'n
Me whipp'n
F'ng crack
Granite smack
More DNA
Decorates the place I play

What's up Farai? Still hitting that hot bed or you sticking with surfing?

Speaking of climb stories... I tried that first multi-pitch line of yours on Sarah... It didn't work. :(

? Sarah, doesn't ring a bell? I’m the only Farai I know so I’m confused as to who’s route it is. Didn’t work for you or dosnt go?

Hahaha!  Clever. That line with the jugs. Sorry you got shut down, but it’s so worth it when they make you have to think. I’d say try the most direct approach,  that route is too classy to flail around on.
