I've made the move back West and started settling into the 9-5 lifestyle. I'm relishing the chance to get back into shape now that I have some free time and a multitude of rock to explore. I started up a membership at the local gym and had a chance to check out one of the smaller bouldering areas just outside town. It had some good sized granite eggs a la Bishop, though more on the slabby side. It was a great opportunity to get my footwork dialed in on some micro-edges.
I busted out my Anasazi Lace-ups for the occasion and although I didn't crank down the laces I was still able to stand on smears that everyone else was blowing off of. It never ceases to amaze me how Stealth® rubber sticks to the most miniscule of features and makes it feel like I'm standing on a ledge.
More updates as I start getting back up to speed.
