First Day at Riverside Quarry

When I picked up some snacks this morning at Trader Joes the day had an ignomious start. I walked out after making my purchases to find my front car door wide open… apparently in my absent-mindedness I had forgotten to shut it! Scary because later in the day I was going to be trusting my life to my focus and abilities to do things correctly!

The day turned out well though. I climbed with my usual climbing partner Kristin Don and her boyfriend Ali and his friends Bo, Payam, Scott lunsford, and Simon.

I did three climbs on tope rope – a 5.10a red point, 5.10c with a couple of breaks, and a 5.11b where I took tons of rests.
