I did my first 5.9 at TRC… a good night of climbing taht started out tough. I was sore and tight, but ended on a good couple of routes.

Old guy tennis. I can’t wait for spring USTA leagues to start!
It’s been awhile since I did a trainer workout, they really hurt!

I wanted to hike and do a Backroad Capers video of a wintery waterfall. I couldn’t find much info so I headed to one of the higher elevations and hoped for the best. No snow or ice, but a pretty walk – Video link will go here!
It’s funny now that I have started trying to rock climb, I look at every rock face or boulder and wonder… this one looked very promising and as I started looking at a route I see it is already bolted for climbing…. after a search I couldn’t find any info so I asked Facebook
“There are a few climbing areas at Upper Creek. The trailside boulder outcropping near the creek has several bolted lines. The juggy routes on the left go at about 5.10. There is an excellent .12+ on the right called Ask the Moon that goes through a crescent feature similar to Rotator Cuff at Rumbling Bald. Another .12, Moonlight, avoids its crux There is another wall of short bolted lines nearer the parking lot that are all 5.9-5.11”

For some reason it dawned on me what to name my normal 1 hour loop… the bus loop

Clay and I have been having long talks about building his truck, today it was skid plates. I love my CBI full belly skid plate
But you can see the exhaust cross over goes UNDER the transfer case, costing me several inches of clearance. After lots of discussion, we decided not to change the pipe and remind ourselves these are not rock crawlers!
Final truck chore of the day, fix my ECT switch
