Ah it feels so good to be back.
Tonight Scott Henderson and I raced out to Wasootch to get a few warm-up pitches in and get a feel back for the rock. Scott and I had never climbed before and this was the first time in ten years for Scott to be on trad so it was fairly easy climbing.
It really just feels good to be leading on gear again and having my head in the right place. I also tested out a bag and lanyard system that I can use while on route. Simple and clean and fast felt good tonight and no real clusters at the hanging belays. A few more times out and I'll have the pro body and good lenses for photographing and not worry about managing them.
