season’s end…in not so glorious fashion

josh season seems to be coming to an end real fast as the weather has now consistently stayed in the 70’s. but it’s not the weather so much as it is doing something down right stupid while setting for trade in a climbing gym. friday, the 12th, Jill and I were setting at rockreation, costa mesa, when I hyper-extended my right middle finger between two holds. it was such a stupid thing, not because I noticed the poor placement of holds, but because I didn’t do anything about it. while forerunning a problem, I cammed my finger between the two holds, both on routes I had set, and tweaked an already swollen finger.

we have plenty of projects that are doable for the next month or so, all in shade and/or deep in boulder fields, so it will be a wait and see game as to when I’ll be able to pull again without thinking about it. bummer… Jill is healthy, so at least one of us can still climb.

here are a few of countless lines we’ve found:

the line can go along the crack arching to the right then up, or straight up along the seem to the top. 20'

this boulder sits atop a hill in the northern territories. cool stone.
