Here Comes the Sun, Hueco Day 3

The weather couldn't have been better yesterday. Bright sun, clear skys, pleasantly cool temperatures through the whole day. We worked on projects in the morning, and then found a problem we hadn't looked at before called "Chris' Arete". It looked good, and climbed even better.

Ashley and I each figured out our own sequence to climb it. In the afternoon we hiked around looking at some hard problems, then we spent some time climbing a few easy problems. "Daily Grind" was pretty fun. It finishes by chimneying between two boulders, and is a bit high. My pictures came out dark. I'll fix and post them when I get back to my computer.

The sunset was quite nice. Hiking out, the vast and still space of the open desert left quite an impression on me.
