5 out of 5 stars more details due to boredom

lets see, what else do I remember? I bought like six knifeblades from Clapp and treat, and they came in handy, there were lots of places to hammer them in, but they probably werent any good. Like I said in my first report I took a fall laybacking high up and I don't know if anything would have held, but I got stuck in a tree to the side. I remember being kind of embarassed and jumped back on the route, went up higher to a really bad spot, and then started shaking, and realizing that I was probably not going to be so lucky this time, so I did a sketchy traverse into YMC, and I remember feeling incredibly relieved when I got a good nut in,

In a few more years I'll add some more details...wondering if anyone reads this stuff.
