For a 12 mile round trip, ~1700' gain, then 1/2 mile long ridge and 600' climb with 3 roped pitches and 4 rappels we saw 2 other climbers and 2 other hikers (one of which gave us bug spray!!) on a bus to bus Monday.
Ro Shampo: 12a. Roadside Crag, Red River Gorge, KY.
Class day out at Garron Point earlier in the week with @cknoway
. Billy made an impressive onsight on Saturn V 6c+ , it took me a second attempt 😋. We explored a cave beneath the main wall and found a load of old Tibetan stuff including a phurba. Felt like Indiana Jones until we realised we were in Ireland and some bloke probably chucked it down there at some point :O

After 500 feet of climbing In the sun the freezing cold water at the base was fully embraced.
Climbing out that jet lag. #rifle
Friday’s Advanced Team practice ended up just being Erica and me. One on one time working with an athlete is always cherished, so we scrapped the plan and worked on the stuff she wanted to work on. Part of this ended up being us projecting together on the same problem! Erica beta is always unique so it was fun to work together to find movement we wouldn’t have considered on our own.
The rest of the time was spent working on body tension and core stability. This lady is a crusher and it’s an honor to be her coach!
