I finally went out to Smith Rock to get back into lead climbing for the day. Outdoor climbing is my favorite: just focus on the moment, breathing, and what is around you. Climbing in a gym is cool, with its own sick soundtrack to get you psyched. But outdoors is super peaceful-- you can hear the birds chirping softly, and super focus on your technique. I was feeling very strong with my Anasazis on; their thick rubber soles were perfect for Smith, and gave me great heel hooks on the technical ascents. And I totally got on; Flat Earth 5.12b, Latest Rage 5.12b, and Heinous 5.12a. I was so stoked, so tried the Anasazis the next time I got back to the gym, and they were great there too with no need to worry about a foot popping off the hold.
