So people-how'd it go? Did you climb what you wanted, how you wanted, etc. Pics? Stories?

I lead an off-width, so all good here.

Sorry no pics, my weekend got even more awesome as Friday wore it's self out. Ended up surfing in Ventura from 6-9.30, then climbing some little crags back out of the sun till around 2. Then we went and tackled Tree Crack 5.6 2 pitches, I led both. And Ending Crack 5.7 2 Pitches, led both of those as well. Thought about climbing one more but ended up calling it a day.

I'm a bit of a newb. I climbed at Devil's Lake all weekend. Got my first trad lead, a 5.4 on Cleo's Needle. I picked it because it was my first outdoor climb 15 years ago on a trip in high-school (set up as a top rope). I just started following trad in November and have been off the rock the last month or so with a shoulder injury. It felt good to come back and do that. Can't wait to start racking em up now! I think my next lead will be a 5.7 I top roped this weekend and feel really good about. Boots Ylectric

Did not go where we planned (Elevenmile Canyon - 3 hr drive + 40% chance of rain), instead went to Lover's Leap in Morrison, CO where we still got rained on, but that was fine - made us climb faster! Feeling sad we missed out on Elevenmile since it was evacuated for a wildfire the next day.

Eldo yesterday, Boulder Canyon today. Even in the shade, triple digit temps are a bit much.

Nice work Ed, looks sweet up there.

Gunks, Gunks, glorious Gunks!

Had a great day out on Friday; climbed easy stuff, but still felt spanked at the end of the day. Practiced self-rescue on Saturday, and had a great day out on Sunday at the Guide's Wall - Madame G's and Snooky's - my first 5.8 trad lead! Woohoo!!

I wish I would have seen you Mara!!!

Saturday we did Horseman and Something Interesting. Sunday, we had the kid, so it was all single pitch stuff, but I got to take a run on Ant's Line, balancy fun!

It was the best weather I have ever seen. I am crying inside over the heatwave heading our way. We are thinking of making the escape to Keene this weekend.

Lover's Leap off 285 near Denver is pretty cool! I used to go there a lot with Leggs McGillicuty, or was it Beatrix Kiddo? (gasp!)

Got out to Garden of the Gods yesterday after work despite the heat. The East face of Grey Rock was cool in the shade. No real climbing plans this weekend yet, maybe some easy soloing. I'm actually going to my friend's daughter's pool party Saturday. Can you believe that shit? I must be nuts! Actually, the friend and I used to climb togehter. Friends4lyfeOMG!

Hope we see you guys out there again soon! I will be braving the temps this weekend with my cousin, who's visiting from Florida. At least she'll be used to the weather...
