When I have too... pulling plastic in a crowded indoor setting isn't my preference... I want to be outside in the elements and actually touch ROCK... so I migrate to ice in the winter. Usually R&J North & South or Movement if I get antsy enough...
Harnesses, shoes, belay devices, helmets (turned my boy's into my personal Belay Biotches), ropes, full TRAD rack, Quarks, crampons, tons of cold weather gear, and my own personal belay bitches (my two son's)!
My Spirit was hooked immediately and I went from TR to TRAD on my fourth climb. I did The Bastille Crack on 7/18/11, hiked into The Park to tick off Sharkstooth & Petit Grepon in August, redpointed Rewritten in September, onsighted The Yellow Spur on Halloween, my first lead was Strawberry Shortcut in November, and I sent Rosy Crucifixion in December. Started Ice climbing at the end of November and on-sighted The Spiral Staircase on my first climb. Since, I've onsighted five classics: East Vail Falls, The Pumphouse, The Desi, Skylight & Horsetail Falls. The Ribbon & Bridalveil are next. The 2012 Summer kick-off will be a week in Red Rock Canyon, NV, then onto my summer goals: The Naked Edge, a lot of Desert Towers in Moab, Le Toit, XM, The Wisdom, Scary Canary, and Psycho! Perfect fit!
Non-stop since 6/4/11
