Last Monday morning a box covered by squares of many languages was delivered to my door. Unable to wait, I parted with my oatmeal to slip on the new Anasazis. While ‘slipping’ might have been a bit of an understatement, quickdraws did the trick leaving my feet snugly surrounded by problem crushing performance.
The next day a local crew and I headed out to Little Si in North Bend, WA to tick some projects off our list. After a break following the steep approach we started to gear up. Reaching into my bag I was soon to discover my beloved broken in Galileos were left in the car. I stood below my project and looked up at the maze of blocks penetrating the wall. Apparently it was time to tryout the Anasazis.
My feet felt light on the rock, somehow sticking to the polished indocite. Following the warm up run I stood below Californiacator, 5.12d, chalked up, and went for it. I finally stayed focused enough to hit the dynamic deadpoints and pull through to the anchors. With another project completed I’m excited for future adventures in these shoes.
