Oh, I loved reading Liz's description of our red rocks trip. It was such a great trip! We went for her birthday and she really succeeded in her climbing this trip. She seemed to move easily on the sandstone and we both found climbs that were our favorite outdoor climbs. Mine was a 5.10b that we warmed up on day 2. It was tricky and technical, but had nice big hold near the clips. I like that in a climb! Falling with all of that slack out, while making a clip, is NO BUENO!
I had hoped for a "party type" Vegas outing but we had kicked our butts climbing and we all were pretty tired. We put a few dollars in the penny slots and had a few beers; Liz and Brad headed back to the room to turn in early. JB and I were in a bar buying drinks, playing video Blackjack when it occurred to me; if we played at a table, drinks would be free! We were quite a team! (I was just helping)It turns out, even helping, they want to get you to the point at which you cannot add. The drinks were free so I think I had about 6 mixed drinks that tasted just like sprite... WHOOPS! We quit while we were ahead and went to bed. We shared a room; the boys in one bed, Liz and I in the other. This room had beds that were too small not to cuddle... Well apparently I thought so, after my earlier beverages. :o Ha Ha! Liz and I were freezing and wet, for 12 hours, on top of peak 2 and didn't cuddle; but apparently things are different in Vegas! :lol:
I felt a tad under the weather for day number 3. I only top roped climbed, due to a horrible headache. Brad showed us how to get an awesome vantage point for climbing photos and that is how we finished our trip.
Liz's triplog was good for climbing details...
I had to break the "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" rule.
:GB: Happy Birthday Lizard!!
