We have errands to do today, but we decide there is time for a quick trip to North Table Mountain for some sport climbing.
At my suggestion, Ann starts up Deck Chairs on the Titanic 5.9+ on lead. The opening moves of this climb are pumpy, which make the remaining crimpy face harder. Ann has given up on the start on toprope before, but today she hangdogs her way up to the top. Go Ann!
I take the easy start to Brown Cloud Arete 5.10b, but manage to finish it up without falling. There is some high-steppin’ goodness on this leaning arete.
Ann leads the funky Windy Days 5.8. Potential groundfall on easy terrain gets her nervous, and she doesn’t enjoy it too much. It is kind of an odd duck. The direct start is pretty fun on toprope.
That’s it, time to buy RV stuff for our road trip next week…
