|Lewis & Haggle in their Subaru 'Buddha Beast'|
As I peruse my list of climbs, I settle on 2. Both in the same area. Separate walls. Both the same grade: 5.12a. Both, judging by the descriptions, equally unsettle my stomach W/ lines such as "a tricky heel hook gets you out onto the scary slab" (god…slab climbing). I chalk this up to ‘1st time jitters’. No worries.
So I settle on 2, but the onslaught of inclement weather this weekend gives me a cushion, a break of sorts. Allowing me to meditate just a little longer before I have to break down & name the climb.
Until then, it is easy street, as it were. Who among us doesn’t enjoy, every once & awhile, house work & a weekend lunch of PHO w/ the person you love?
