It's an Exciting World

The life and times of David Geisert



Climbing With Steph

Steph and I went climbing again last night, and we got a good number of climbs in.  We hit a 5.10d on one of the taller walls, and it was quite a challenge.  The holds had been made very smooth from the hands of many people before us and a ton of oily chalk.  There was one part in particular that Steph and I skipped, but I was able to come back to it later and get through it with some really precarious balancing.  Steph was getting worried about some stuff at work, so we went back home to let her work through it.

Climbing with Steph at Planet Granite

Steph and I went to Planet Granite and got some good climbing in.  The routes we chose were not as hard as the ones we had done before, and Steph had her butt way off the wall on the last one.  She ended up pulling her shoulder/neck doing the last climb so I helped her out a bit with the belay.  We did a 5.9, 510a, 5.10c, and 5.11a.  The 11a was hard, and clearly made for someone my height.  I’m impressed Steph was able to do it at all.
