lol was a "wifey day" for karen and teresa, so jeff and I looked to entertain ourselves. these were the only routes in the vicinity we hadnt done.....we also did at least ten laps each on one of the 10a's right there, so you can see we were stretching...but no worries, the rack will go back beside the drill as I would hate to waste good fall days plugging only 3-4 pitches a day;)

Get on the wall and you'll enjoy the run . . . will keep an experienced trad leader's attention, if only for a short while.
