Afternoon Fun at portland

After struggling with flu the past few weeks my climbing hasn't been too good, plenty of feeling weak moments and failing on problems I normally cruise up down craggy I was feeling pretty shit. Sitting down today watching sharma on dreamcatcher suddenly sparked a bit of energy in me giving me an urge to shoot over to the cutting for the afternoon. Driving over I was wondering whether I was doing the right thing, still bunged up and aching like a fifty year old might not work for me today. Anyway me and Alisha arrived at the cuttings, I had forgotten the guidebook so decided to head to a V4 called "In Ya Face", I hadn't tried it before but had seen Phil onsight it earlier on in the year, anyway after loosing some skin and a few failed attempts I managed to get the tick.. We then move on round to the tank boulder where I managed to onsight another V4 called "crouching start,hidden agenda" this was a really cool route. I then completed a few easy V2 before deciding I had lost enough blood for one day..  A good afternoon all in all, was nice to spend some time with my little one and also nice to know I may be getting over this flu Shit!

Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are
naught without prudence, and that a momentary negliance may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste; Look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end
