4 out of 5 stars Sneaky Tough

Great moves on a vertical wall. There was some forced clever move-making up there. Tough for the grade or maybe it was the first-time-out-of-the-year jitters.

4 out of 5 stars Felt great today

Cliff was shrouded in fog. I thought the rock would be damp. It was awesome today. The climb felt easy today.
