Red River Gorge...and then some.

Me and Matt got to Miguels too late Sunday to climb but just in time to beat the crowd to some awesome pizza.  Monday we got an early start, spending the whole day at the Roadside crag.  I'm not going to try and pretend to remember the names of everything we climbed but one wall in particular was beautiful; three 5.10's right beside each other-climbed every one of them!  We spent Tuesday in Muir Valley at Johny/tectonics wall with a sick 5.9+ and a 10c getting lucky in kentucky. We then hopped over to Practice wall getting over our fear of heights (20ft), ending our climbing at Bruis Brothers where I led my first 5.11 outside of the gym. Climbing at the Red the past few days has made it much easier to accept that bouldering season is about over and I'm completely PSYCHED on sport season!

I got the text from Joseph right after I walked in the door last night: "you in town?  wondering if you wanted to go to the roof tomorrow."  The dayton roof has some stout climbing and stays almost completely dry in a light rain, which made it perfect for today...even though it ended up never raining out there. We met a couple guys from NC who were passing through Chattanooga doin the same as us, looking for that last bit of dry sandstone before the end of their trip.  Sorry guys, names don't stick long and I lost your info.  We all pretty much got shut down but not after making some sick efforts considering we'd all been climbing for 3 or more days in a row.  Pics for both trips check 'em out!
