Ah yes, even as a staunch atheist, this is a great season. A time for family, alcohol, food and little to no climbing. Every year I have taken at least 3 weeks off around this time to get my body mass index through the roof. Tis the season to be BBs. I have a sneaking suspicion that Sam Dogan Johnson shares this sentiment as well. One more final to go, then a solid month break from Grizlandia.
It's been exactly 2 months since I got outside to climb, or even really cared about climbing in general. Well, the break is about to be over. New motivation as 2011 comes to a close has got me really itching to get outside. Headed home for a little bit this weekend with Victoria, might make a stop at Rattler on the way if it's nice, and maybe if the stars align a short Boulder Batholith session on the way back. Love me some Cretaceous plutonism and spheroidal weathering. Seeing as my endurance is utter shit, all the time, short routes would be a good way to get some climbing in and Rattler offers some shitty short routes. Anyone have recommendations? Whiskey or new areas? Decisions, decisions.
