Jtree Jeremy REI Weekend
Headed out to Jtree for some good food, drinks and climbing. Day 1 hit up Banana Cracks. Left was pretty cruiser for 5.10c (soft), right kicked my ass at 5.11b. I fell right at the crux and spent so much energy, I couldn't pull it. We then headed to sphincter quits which was fun with offset cams and then route on the great burrito.
Headed out to Equinox to rope solo. It was pretty fun and was going easy. I decided near to the top to place a cam hook, a cam which I back cleaned and another cam hook. The second cam hook was in a flare. I was about 8-10 feet above my last piece and I heard the cam hook starting to wedge out. I threw in a finger lock just as the cam hook popped and was hanging above my gear on a single finger lock. I looked down at my all potential and knew I wouldn't deck, so I tightened up my gri gri and quickly threw a cam in. It stuck and I was relieved. I had a mini epic trying to find my car in the dark - that is another story :)
