  • So as I was driving home from the climbing gym tonight (two ascents and downclimbs of a new 5.4 or so on the slab wall, the second ascent no-hands except the one step that was too high for me to make; a resend of a 5.7, and a flameout on an unrated route I've done before which I think is a 5.8 -- also, they rated a route I sent on the slab a while back as 5.9, which makes it my second 5.9. yay!)
