Mexico Madness!

Went bouldering yesterday for the first time in months,  sicky sticky temps in the forest.  Yasser said I did a new V8, cool.  Tomorrow I might go bouldering again, or watch Alex Honnold on “Cobra Crack” 5.14- or try “Going to California” 5.13-, or I might go redpoint the shit out of my “Power of Yesterday” project (5.13+ 4 pitches).  Hmmm, too many decisions, Hmmm, here’s two more videos from BDEL for your viewing pleasure.   I screwed up yesterday and put them all out of order, so here they are again,  1 through 4 – Hope you enjoy mom…

This last clip is hilarious.  After 10 hours of driving back to the boarder, and 3 hours waiting to cross, the best (WORST) part of our trip came right at the end, when the front right wheel of Andrew Burr’s Toyota truck fell off on the Freeway going 70 miles per hour.  It was either the rough Mexi roads, or some kids tried to steal his tires – Either way – we stuck the crash landing and got towed to a mechanic in Tucson, Arizona.  Yay!
