I went to spain... well, it was for a month, not just last weekend, but it was awesome, even at 3 month pregnant! I managed to do a 7a+ (on TR) with one fall, which I think is pretty good for a pregnant lady! :wink:

Two glorious days of cragging at S-Town. Sunny and 68 both days. Walked out in the twilight on Sunday after making absolutely sure that my arms would be completely useless for another 5 days or so...

Was at Horse Flats this sunday! Everyone thought that the weather sucked everywhere! It did actually! Was raining at LA County! Half way up the Angeles Crest Hw, you pass all the rain clouds and the weather was perfect! No clouds at all since there way below you! Perfect climbing/bouldering! :)

That guy is wearing a SUPERMAN shirt!!!!

I only ever climb in a batman shirt. If I'd choose the all powerful kryptonian over the closet homosexual millionaire, I could climb harder too.

I set a goal for myself to climb every day for the month of October. This weekend was sort of my midpoint and I had a 3 day weekend to spend climbing. Since I don't have a climbing partner I spend most of my climb time bouldering.

I was a little tired on Saturday. I'm not exactly sure why but my forearms wore out quicker than they normally do. I spent most of my time trying to climb easy routes through the burn but didn't get many attempts on new routes. I was able to tough through an hour and a half of climbing but I didn't feel very good at all.

Sunday I almost didn't get to go climbing. I babysat my girlfriend's daughter for most of the day while she worked and she didn't get back until an hour before the gym closed. I rushed to the gym and spent my time working on 3 "project" routes. I lost a lot of skin off my fingertips that day.

Monday I arranged for a different babysitter and got 2 hours of climbing in. It was probably the best day of climbing I've had since this month started. I strained a muscle by my elbow right off the bat so it was aching the whole time but I managed to make 2 of my "projects". I also was able to on-sight (is that possible in a gym?) a route that I didn't even think I would be able to start.

I took Tuesday off climbing to let my elbow rest a little bit.

All said I had a decent weekend climbing. I wouldn't consider myself that great of a climber but the routes I finished were definitely testing my skill and strength. I'm very happy with the progress I have made in 2 weeks. If things keep going this way I may just extend my climbing goal to include next month too.

Now I just need to find someone who can help me learn lead and I'll be set. My gym requires two people to take a lead class and the one co-worker that I've climbed with lives about 45 minutes away and goes to another gym. I'm just really bummed that I got serious about this late in the season. Now I have to play roulette with the weather before trying to plan a trip to Smith, Broughton, Beacon, etc.

My suggestion: don't. I had that mentality once, and it did me no good. If you don't give your body a break of at least 48 hours, you're going to greatly increase the risk of injury. My ability plateaued around 5.9/5.10a, and I thought that was because I didn't climb enough. I didn't improve until I stopped climbing every day, and did something else that wasn't finger and forearm-intensive. Be kind to your body, and it will reward you. Run it into the ground, and it will only make you climb worse.

My 4 day weekend ended yesterday.

Sport and trad climbing at Jackson Falls Saturday and Sunday with a little PBR enhanced night bouldering.
Spent a rainy Monday climbing on Dave Chancellor's monster garage woodie.
Spent a few hours getting worked at yet another set of secret SoIll pebbles.

Did a three pitch and two two pitch routes in the Stronghold with a new partner. We had a great time. I love watching the eagles and hawks from above.
