Busy Week

Sunday and Monday I climbed at the Spot trying various competition problems and finding the easier ones really reasonable and well set. Tuesday was punctuated by a visit to JVonD productions for an interview for the local cable show he does with Mike Brooks. Thursday it was back to the Spot to try some more 5 spots where I walked away with two flashed 5 minus problems. My last problem was on the Dojo where, after getting pumped up high on a 4+, I looked down to see that someone had moved the mat away from under me! I had to ask them to move the mat back so I could jump safely. Needless to say I was not happy and left shortly after.

Before going to the Spot I visited Flag which was just too cold and windy for my liking but I confirmed that There Will be Blood still is feasible. I should add that I think it would be great if boulderers would try a bit harder at cleaning up the chalk that's left behind and maybe not leave big white spots all over the holds. It was a bit intense up there. Hoping for good conditions tomorrow.

the spot can rent climbing shoes, but it doesn't rent etiquette.

Normally something like that wouldn't have been a big deal but being tired made it feel like my belayer had been borrowed by another climber while I was at the BRC
