|Can we please take a moment to note that it's December and Chad is in shorts. #winning|
And I did do well. In fact, I rocked it! I climbed the hardest rated climb that I've ever done (5.10a). Not only that, it was the highest climb I've ever done as well. Ba-Bam!
On Sunday we were climbing in Green Valley when I climbed my first 5.9 (Perky's Playground) clean. This wall has a lot of history for Chad and I. The climb right next to this is where Chad took his first fall lead climbing. It was terrifying. And this 5.9 is one that I couldn't even start two months ago. Literally couldn't even start. This climb is my favorite right now if only because it shows how far I've come and how strong (mentally and physically) I've gotten. No resting on the rope for me. No desperation grabbing. No stupid brain sabotaging me. I climbed that wall perfectly. Like a freaking boss.

It was an amazeballs weekend full of climbing successes! And now that Monday is here... we can both barely move. We can't wait for that hot tub in Provo. Oh yeah, and to see our family too ;)
