indian summer at shelf road

Climbed at Shelf Road a few weekends ago, roundabouts the first of November or so. The weather was amazing — temps felt like they were in the mid 70s or so, and at one point, we were actually chasing the sun.

Climbing at Shelf always makes you feel like a hero, since the ratings are a bit soft. I got what was ostensibly my hardest onsight to date: some 10d whose name I can’t remember. Who knows if that grade would hold up at other locations.

In any case, the climbing was fab, the weather beautiful, and the company was about as solid as it gets. Now that old man winter is upon us, we can only dream of the halcyon days of the first of November.
