I made it to Index on Sat and WW1 on Sun. Climbed p1 and p2 of Princely to warm up. The couple of face moves on the 1st pitch were pretty darn wet making 5.9 surprisingly spicy. I hadn't ever done the 2nd bit and was more hoping to try Dr Sniff, but there was a waterall on the layback bit. Only the short hand crack was worthwhile on p2 princely, IMO. Then off to thin fingers which was seeping inside the lower bit making the finger locks suck more than usual. I then flailed on the short boulder problem but hiked the upper bit. My friend Melissa wanted to get some more parctice placing gear, so we did GNS, she did the 5.2, then i went up libra and she led to the top, shes getting better at placing good gear quickly,hopefully she'll start ropegunning for me soon . finished the day with stunning...errr cunning stunt. i hadnt done it before, it turned out to be a lot of fun! i highly reccomend it, lots off different climbing styles packed into 1 crag pitch.
at 32 we warmed up on girls in the gym then did psycho wussy, the bad guy and finally end of the world. i hung at least once on everything except our warm-up, but it was nice to know i could still do the moves on all of those routes. melissa took scoot up on an offer to TR bust the move and then went for one more lap on girls in the gym to cool down. my shoulders were spent after end of the world though, so i called it quits then.
i'm looking forward to a good summer of climbing
