Get outside and have an adventure!

We got up early and headed out of town to Rifle, CO. We would not be returning home until after the 64 pitch day. As usual, it was cold and snowy! Yeah!
So we sat in the car until 9ambefore we began freezing our fingers and toes on the limestone cliffs.
Yes, it was cold.
But the walls were dry or at least frozen, so we had that going for us.
By 2ish we had each climbed 16 pitches between 5.10 and 5.12 with no falls. What a great way to push ourselves. I felt a bit tired at the end of this one due to the pump factor of the canyons routes. It was great to see Ben hanging in there and standing on his feet. He had climbed many days in a row before but not like this with an agenda where the sooner you got done meant more rest for the next day!
It was on to Golden to my old place and old roommates house. We would be entertained all that night by my old roommate sharing stories of about 10 years of he and I living together and all the goofy things that I said or did. Good times. Thanks Jim!
