I picked up Sparker Thursday for an afternoon of flailing down at LoHo. Warmed up on the usual shit at Roadside, then I showed him the Snowbound project. We tried it for a bit and deemed it too sharp and hard, so we moved on up to Girlfriend's Best Friend boulder. Tried the 9ish project for about an hour, I couldn't do anything on it, as usual, but Scotty had some good goes on it. We then tried the much harder, weirder, kind of contrived arete on the backside of the boulder. More flailing ensued. Photos:
Keep that foot on, Scotty!
It's all choss.
Setting up for the first move deadpoint.
If this problem were to have a few more feet on it, it was probably be V5, fortunately there is dime edges facing the wrong way. Probably one of the last best projects in LoHo proper.
In other news, I'm getting a new car in a couple weeks. Pretty excited.
