I put on my harness 2 times this trip once to TR an very "technical cruxy climb" It was in the 5.10 range so I figured, How hard can it be? It was intuitively easy for me. I heard few others say I climbed with so much confidence and grace.
Wow, I haven't heard this before maybe I always feel like the underdog because I always hang out with such strong climbers. Today I was the strong climber...
This got me thinking, perhaps I just need to change my perspective.
The wind was ridiculous I took advantage of the shorter approach and packed in lunch and a few beers. The second time I put on my harness, Joey had asked me for a very attentive belay for a climb he was projecting. There were a few areas he could have decked so I gave a very specific belay. To keep him from hitting the ground, my plan was to jump backwards off a cliff to take in slack quickly. Luckily he didn't fall. All in all it was a fun little day trip to Flagstaff's favorite outdoor gym, The Pit.
