Rain Rain Go Away Version 2.0! (Does it always rain every time I want to climb at the gunks?)

Mitch and I headed to the Nears at 5PM on Friday evening. I had big "plans", warm up on Gelsa and do my first lead of Roseland. Alas, my biorhythms must have been at an all time low for "physical" and "mental". I was dropping stuff, missing my clips, every move felt like a 5.12, I was run out, couldn't find pro etc.

I took one look at Roseland and figured I had better wait since I was in such a crappy climbing frame of mind. We ran up grease gun groove and once again everything felt hard. I am glad I didn't do Roseland!

It's raining hard here this morning (lots of thunder and lightning). It's supposed to clear up by noonish and then get windy. I am hoping that the winds will dry the rock and we will get out in the late afternoon. In the mean time, I need to get rid of this horrible stiff neck and deep sense of forboding. On second thought, I might be better off not climbing...

The sun burst through in the noonish range and there were fierce winds all afternoon. We hit the cliff at 4 and it was totally dry. It was windy, cold, but we had some fun climbing Baby, Twisted Sister and Easy O. Much more relaxed today, I felt much better climbing.
