you taste like tear stains and could have beens, but i love a good train wreck.

I am officially off the 5.7 plateau and onto the 5.8 one. Tonight, I resent an overhung 5.7, worked on an underated 5.7 project route in the corner, did a V.0 and some traversing, worked on a 5.9 and a 5.8 that I think I also have to call projects at this point, and redid a 5.7 with a roof that I haven't touched in a while. All in all, a really good climbing night.

The 5.9, I have the bottom half of, and I'm pretty proud of that, because it's overhung and all off-balance slopers. Very technical. (We have decided that routes can be hard, difficult, complicated, or all three. Hard routes are physically challenging, difficult routes are technical, and complicated routes are intellectual. This one is all three. *sigh* Also, it scrapes my hands to hell and gone.)

I almost have the 5.8. I can send it, but it's ugly, and the last move is a total flail.
