So, things didn’t work out as planned down in Bishop, I was really hoping to do the 4th ascent of Ambrosia, on my 4th and last day, I felt super strong on the beginning problem, and I knew the upper half like the back of my hand. Unfortunately thin skin and the busted gravel at the start made things more challenging, and although I did climb through that section (with lots of bitching and whining) I wasn’t able to link it all the way to the rest. So, the line awaits for a re-match. As a consolation prize, I managed to squeak out an ascent of Evilution Direct. Oh what a bloc. Thanks for all the amazing support and crash pads from fellow climbers, thanks for the great motivation from Will and Charlie, and for the encouragement from everyone, when I fell from the lip the first time, and looked at my bloody flapper, I thought it was just best to go home, but I stuck it out for more burns, and the next thing I knew, I was shaking in my boots over the lip, up on the slab, wondering how I got there. Such a nice climb. One of my all time favorites!
I’d like to invite all of you to a super fun slide show this weekend. In fact, I’m doing two.
One at On The Rocks, in Cambell River BC on Dec, 17th, 2010 – 8pm.
and the other one at The Romper Room, Nanaimo BC on Dec 18th, 2010 – 8pm.
I’m honored to be invited over to Vancouver Island for these presentations, and it would be great to see you all there. Thanks.
