Rest Day Shenanigans

On our rest day we observed the local goats helping themselves to some climber's crag snacks. Oh well, what's mine is yours at Miguel's I guess.

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Send updates: Shane sent his first 5.9 Creature Feature, as well as All Cows Eat Grass 5.8. As for me it has been a sick day but tomorrow is looking better.

OK I didn't really jump...I was pushed!

Climbing when it is 36 degrees outside is not a good idea...lesson learned.

Miguel's new bathrooms and showers

Miguel hopes to have it done by this weekend for Rocktoberfest, but no promises. It includes 7 shower stalls in the back. Also a double sink, double toilet mens and womens bathroom in the front. Should be sweet. And no Miguel has no idea what he is going to do with the top part. (At least he is not revealing it yet)

Happy to be at Summersville Lake. Apparently Jason is going to try to spear a fish with the stick clip.

The whole gang grubbin at Pies and Pints after a day of first sends.
