The desert will never get old to me. The shadow across the rock in the distance is mesmerizing. The fact that you have no idea how far that rock is, is intimidating. Are they really there? Because it looks like a painting. @cereshalo @benjisaurus @kirk_hilton
Pretty epic day swinging leads in Black Velvet Canyon. Found a great partner for the day who put me on some stuff I probably wouldn't have tried without his encouragement. Psyche was high. Put up two 3-pitch routes as 2-pitches and a couple single pitches, up to 5.10c, including the most sandbagged .10a I've found yet. Followed one .10d trad pitch that was just a bit too heady for me. Felt good, climbed well and can't wait to come back to explore more. Trad climbing is something I never really thought I'd pursue, but I'm gaining confidence and enjoying pushing grades a bit while plugging gear.
Out here every Sunday morning. About to start meditation and yoga sessions at the end of trails. Its hard to avoid stress but the more you cope with it the easier it is to manage. Have a blessed week everyone.
