I slept a bit uneasily in Golden, CO the night before the 32 pitch day. But I had a plan and new that I could do it. We would visit 4 walls and do about 8 routes at each wall and then take it from there. If we were unable to get 8 at a wall then we would catch up at the Red Slab at the end of the day.
We started at the Dog Wall. It has a warm up or two and then a few juggy overhanging climbs.
Only one route was dripping, so we flew though these in about an hour or so. Two of my favorite climbs in the canyon are on this wall. Anarchitect and the 12d to the left! I was psyched to send both of them on my first go after all these years!
Before we stopped there, we climbed with some Colorado School of Mines students at the Wall of the 90's.
In all the day went off without a hitch, sending all the climbs was awesome and I felt ready for the big day at the Cactus Cliff. It actually became pleasant by the end of the day so we didn't have to wear our down jackets all day for once!
