It's raining this weekend, statewide, so we won't be getting outside. But last weekend Mike and Kaiya spent a day with us at Sweetwater. Mike first got in touch through Instagram, and two days later we were climbing together, telling jokes, and talking about mutual friends. It was a fun day, and I'm looking forward to getting out with them again.
Mike making a quick ascent of "Norwegian Wood" V6.
Ashley also climbed "Norwegian Wood." And that's news because she tried it on many occasions over the last few years. Heat, wind, fatigue, or fear had always gotten in the way. But last weekend she committed, topped out and had so much fun that she climbed it one more time.
We were lucky that it warned us, because I never would have seen it.
Mike made the first ascent of a project out there, and named it "Snake Charmer" V7/8.
My fingers were tired before we even got to the project up the hill.
It's been raining a lot since then. So I'm stuck inside, catching up on work, making sure that I'll be ready if conditions are climbable next week. Soon Wyoming will be a sea of green, and I'll have a lot of time to enjoy it.
