Crystal Wall Evening

cloudy rappelI finally manage a clean ascent of the 5.10b I’ve been working on. I do it first, slipping into just the right meditative state of mind. It feels really good. Ann has a hard time with this one due to a big reach at the bottom, but we sample some of the new route to the left on toprope, and she manages more of that. I try it too – very nice edges and sidepulls. The part I climb feels like maybe 5.10d. There are frogs croaking on our descent, and the air is filled with the perfume of some flowering plant. We’re glad we came.
