Sunday, one day after being back on the east coast I worked with an aspirant guide named Allison Berg. She's a competent climber who's climbed and led lots of 5.9 and easy 5.10 in the Gunks but has shied away from the roofier climbs. We met up for a day of jug hauling on steep classic 5.10's in the Gunks.
For me, finding time to train for rock climbing this spring has been hard to do and I'm a little bit behind as far as endurance goes. We climbed Bonnie's Roof Direct (1 pitch, 9+), Falled on Account of Strain (one pitch, 10b), Erect Direction (the best 10 in the Trapps?? 10c, 10a) and pitch one of Nurse's Aid (whoa. heads up and challenging, 10a/b PG-R). We had a great day together but my arms were smoked by the end.
