It seems to be the season of the Praying Mantis at Golden Cliffs. They’ve turned Golden, like the scrubby hillside weeds. Ann met one along the trail, then another came up to watch us climb and kindly offered to belay Sean.
Climbs of the day: Big Dihedral 5.8 (A very fun trad lead!), Deck Chairs on the Titanic 5.9+, Killian’s Dead 5.6.
