After slipping while on lunchbreak and knocking 2 toenails off, although i could not physically wear my climbing shoe without feeling like Aron Rolston when he cut his arm off, i decided was not going to let it ruin my day.. one foot, 2 arm accent. Looks like its one legged climbing for the rest of this trip!

My one goal for the weekend. After getting on it to put draws up and remember what was where, i felt pretty confident it was about to send it! After being short roped as i throw for the lip first attempt, and then getting my arm tangled in the rope my next shot, managed to get it done 3rd attempt for the day. maybe 5th attempt total. considering how little i have been climbing recently.. pretty happy to nail my 2nd 25!
