Despite Justin's injury, this trip has been total fun. Joe's has a ton of great lines to offer every climber. Kevin, Wick, and Ryan each made ascents of Nerve Extension, an explosive connection to the hard Big Joe. Yesterday, to catch the evening sun, Justin, Ryan, Turtle and I made our way to New Joe's. Justin and I did Spam, a fun little line; later Ryan and I did the classic Pocket Rocket. Although, I think I let Justin down because I was unable ( but unwilling if you ask him) to do the dyno problem static. I am tall, just not that tall.
Wick getting through the crux of Big Joe, and on into Nerve Connection.
Ryan avoiding the look of a beach whale, on the top of Save Yourself.
My dear friend Vicki told me that I must do the Angler. She was right. The line is perfect, up a sloping rail towards a beautiful emerald pond.
As the days pass, and our time slowly runs out I am rejuvenated for society, and more climbing.
The Rest of the Crew
PS. Sorry, this post should have gone out three days ago, apperently Kevin only likes to save pictures of himself.
