One of my New Years Resolution last year was to get at least 8 hours sleep a day. Achieved nicely. (I can break this rule for long routes)

Every year I seem to take a month to six weeks off. Not because I lack motivation, but because things interfere with climbing. As a teacher, this time usually fell around the beginning of the school year. Not a bad thing when you consider I have just spent 6 to 8 weeks climbing. My body probably needed the rest, but I would not have rested voluntarily.

Overall, this has been a slow climbing year for me. I'm guessing about 100 days on the rock. Mostly because I started my own business and the school I worked at needed a teacher to cover classes for a couple months. That was in August and I', still here. (Will remain till March)

Did some climbing photography. Not as much as usual, but some new themes with shooting indoors.

My wife and I celebrated new years sport climbing in Southern Thailand.

Spent lots of time climbing the crags near Surabaya with my wife.

My gym manager doing what he likes best, climbing outdoors.

Working on a project there. 6 years now, over 50 attempts. I climbed it once on my third try, broke a key hold through the crux the next time, and another before the crux the next time around. With the missing holds, haven't figured out the sequence yet.

Visited Batu Cave in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. Some excellent climbing there within 20 minutes of downtown. I would live in KL with no problems.

Started to establish a new "big wall" route. Should be about 18 to 20 pitches when complete. Rainy season came, so the project is on hold. Bolts are needed, but overall it will be a mixed route.

Did some much needed Climbing Community Service project. Anchor replacements.

One of the belay bolts replaced recently.

Spent to much time in the climbing. Playing and working.

Achieved a few other non-climbing related projects too.
