Another combo day. Went up Jim's Cut and traversed to "A" trail. That was a tough hike up. It is a steep canyon. We came down "A" to pick up another hiker. Headed up trail to traverse over to Terri's Cut.

In that canyon I was able to do three new climbs. I learned some new technics. I used the opposing hand grips, pushing down on left while pulling on right. Also, step by step of getting good foot holds. Need to work on the natural desire to lean into rock when stepping up.

The one climb I turned back on twice before I was able to do. It was a bit tricky to slid up backwards and then turn into the place I needed to be. When I got scared I wanted to rush up. Michal helped to remind me to take my time.

Traversed back over to "A" and went down fissure. Climbed all the way to bottom.

An fun loop hike up Quarry, past the mine, up the A to the bluffs, over the Ridge above Ortega South, down the canyon, up to the Waterfall on Ortega, down to the Pipeline, over to a homeless camp, and back to the Fire House. Lovely weather.
