Here's what happened this weekend:
1 - Nic came down and did a Five Ten shoe demo on Friday. It went really well and a bunch of people tried out some awesome shoes.
2 - After pledging to drink 14 beers Friday night we combined to drink 8 and then promptly passed out.
3 - Nic ran an awesome setting clinic Saturday morning and afternoon. He did a fantastic job and I know that personally I learned some valuable things. Not sure about anyone else but I appreciated that he took everyone, myself included, a bit out of their comfort zones and forced people to try things a little bit differently. Too often we get stuck in what we're 'good' at and it's nice to get a reminder that there are other ways to do things.
4 - Nic, Remo and I went up to the lake on Saturday evening for a quick session. Nic almost rear ended me. I hit myself in the balls with a 4 foot pry bar taking my pad out of the car. We got lost. Found new talus fields. Nic and Remo put up a sick new compression line called Lost In The Wood. Found more boulders. Found the Monolith trail a solid 40 feet from said new boulders. Nic tried Sex and Chocolate With A Cherry On Top. Nic failed at climbing Sex and Chocolate With A Cherry On Top. Remo did a lap on Sex and Chocolate. Nic did Tipping Point. We had an epic pad golf game that ended in near pitch black in the parking lot. Nic hit me with his pad in the parking lot. I hit him in the balls.
5 - Katie did Hipsters on Sunday. Fast.
6 - Katie tried Tunder Tighs and Remo ran another lap on it. That problem will be fucking hard for Katie. Christ.
7 - Remo and Esser did Bud White. Aaron jumped off after getting to the topout.
8 - Chris, Remo, Aaron and I tried the Smooth Op Roof Project. All of us were able to pull off the ground and get established and Chris and I were able to slap the left hand on the first move. Remo was able to hold the position for the second move after we power spotted him on it.
9 - Chris hung on the juglet and the juglet exploded into many, many pieces. Personally, I think the problem is better for it.
10 - Aaron renamed the project. First he called it the Cheesemaker. Then he called it the Cheddarmaker. Then we all settled on calling it the Cheddarmilker project. I like it.
11 - Sarah finally did Magnum! She was absurdly close to doing it late last season and I can only assume that she did it rather quickly. Nice work.
12 - I edited this video together. Enjoy.
