I finally got back out climbing today. My back is completely healed. I did a few short runs last week and felt great.
Not much to say about today. We went out to the beer climbs for an easy day. I think they are called the beer climbs, because you can climb them even if you have a beer belly. Or may it means they are so easy you can climb them drunk. Kim led up the left and I followed. We did a few laps and rapped out by 2pm.
It is amazing how fast you can lose climbing fitness. I was huffing and puffing by the top of the climb and felt kinda awkward. I need to go back over my notes from Ouray. I wrote down everything that I learned so that I can pick a few things to work on.
In two weeks is the Ice Pixies festival in Valdez. It will be my first time climbing in Valdez so I'm psyched. This post is boring. Here is an ugly picture from the beer climbs today. The approach is short but fun, because you have to free climb this low angle ice that weaves in and out of the trees and devils club.
