I mean, let’s be real about this. Bill Clinton had a budget surplus. George Bush gave us the deficit, gave us the recession, gave us the de-regulatory craziness that led us over the cliff. The Tea Party is the tail wagging the dog. It is the inmates running the asylum. It is people who don’t know history, economics, politics, sociology, science…it is insane!”
~ Eliot Spitzer
I led my second 5.9, but didn’t onsight it. It was pumpy, diagonaly, slighty over hungish with a massive bulge below the 3rd bolt (of course right?)
I followed it first, then TR’ed it to clip in my PASS and lock off the rope on a grigri so I could take photos of others on two adjecent routes. First time I tried that and man it got uncomfortable quick. Not sure if it was how I clipped in or my harness or what but I hung for about 15-20 minutes. It wasn’t even my camera because I forgot to bring it.
I also worked another 5.9 and flailed on a 5.10c that was pretty wicked (completely overhanging and sequential) that I was able to finish. I threw for one hold and hurt my left elbow when I over shot it and pulled it. Then I slipped off.
Today I am sore, particularly my left arm.
