Yeah, Index is still #1 in my book for sandbags. I haven't taken a whipper on a 5.8 in years, but whaddya know, a couple weeks ago at Index....

I actually thought the first pitch of Japanese Gardens to be reasonable for 5.10a (I'm not sure if it's listed as 5.9 or .10a now). Breakfast of Champions, on the other hand, is one of the burliest .10as I've ever done. While we're on the subject, the most sandbagged climb that I've (ever?) gotten spanked on is MF Overhang at Leavenworth. When you think you can climb 5.10c cracks, go try it. I'm 0 for 3 so far, but ready for a rematch one of these days! I suppose I haven't tried any .10c's at Index, though, so maybe they're even worse.

On the plus side, I did get my first ever so-called 5.11d redpoint at Gritscone yesterday. Woo-hoo!
