Great tough warm up lead climb for main wall

Great climb, I'll have to lead this my next trip.

tough start (over the water)
Mike and I camped out at Jack's. We met JB and Patrick there and shared their campfire. The next day we had a nice breakfast, courtesy of Mike, and began our climbing day. I really like the main wall of Jack's, except most of the climbs there are still way above my grade.

I find that it's easy just to TR everything when you climb with really talented, strong climbers, BUT I have to lead more! For a warm up, I led Genesis a 5.10d. I sat at the bolt under the crux to shake out my forearms before making the 'tough' moves. It was so much easier than I had remembered it; next time I'll try to get it clean, even as a warm up.(JP NOTE: many holds and good feet the whole climb, go to the very top and stabilize before clipping the anchors) We then met up with Pat and JB and a few of Mike's friends, we also ran into Deidre; She helped develop the area and wrote the guide. Deidre is an awesome person and is a inspiration for all of us female climbers in AZ!

The I got on a 12a with a bouldery start, I could touch the next hold but I decided to stop after about 10 unsuccessful attempts. There were a limited amount of climbs in that area due to some residual flooding. I got on a few more climbs including another one that I have to lead next time called Mighty Morphine (JP NOTE: it was very intuitive and had good feet crux was near top where it was balancy but holds are around the edge to the L)

I got to belay Mike on his project; Hall of flame a 5.13b. He did amazing, and got the send on his first attempt, I think it was his first time climbing it clean. He had many great sends that day and it was great to watch everybody's graceful technique on this powerful wall. Someday I hope I can lead these tough climbs, with as much confidence and skill.
