Well, the weather has turned to pure crap here in arkansas. To sum it up it rained for 3 days straight and on the last day it turned to snow and turned most everything to ice. The climbing today was decent however it was so cold that my tips turned to glass and the rock felt like i was grabbing ice rather than amazing textured sandstone. So instead of sticking it out and dealing with mid 20 degree weather for the next week or so alex and i have made the executive decision to move towards las vegas in search of warmer weather and amazing climbing in and around red rocks! I spoke with a friend who mentioned amazing projects in the red rocks area and we are both very psyched for the escape!
I was not able to get any good days on lost in the hood, however the one day i did try (the right start hold was wet) i came very close to sticking the first crux move giving it around 7 or so tries total. I am bummed i may have to leave this climb undone this trip but think that i will be making a short trip here in January, if the weather permits, to try and finish lost in the hood as well as this amazing project that i got very close to.
