Results without winning..

With Perfect weather conditions it was prime time to hit the boulderfeild to try tick off some of the harder lines, i headed in and after a few amazing cupcakes from the local shop I met drew and we made our way down with a number of routes in our sights... ladys night, Declassified, Lightning strikes & Borro del Terro.. All tough problems and test pieces of the boulderfield.. After warming up on a few easy V1, and 2's we jumped on the hard Ladies night V8, Drew had been working this the previous week and had some good beta on how to get off the floor, the holds really on non existent on this other than a few shocking slopers, after a few attempt Drew managed to send the route, I tried a few times but unable to to get on with it, defiantly possibly but i will need to work on it, With drew sending it we were both very stoked and wanting more. We decided to head over to declassified, this is an amazing prow which goes at V7, probably one of the best at the grade on the island.. whist drew was getting is shoes on i mentioned that if he got it first go id give him my bag of min eggs, I was a Little shakey when he landed the lip with only the top out to go..but that's the thing with this problem, it is never over until you right on top, sad for him..but lucky for me he fell, i enjoyed the mini eggs, i did give him one for his efforts.. I jumped on and had a few attempt getting close on a few occasions, with the nature of the route being very powerful moves rest is essential and you don't get many attempts before your body starts to feel broken, we both played and both came close but due to tiredness we were unable to send it, I pretty sure with fresh arms I will send it next visit.. Although we were both pretty done now we decided to head to Borro Del Terro on the walk out, this is another hard V7 with a possible dangerous landing.. but the setting for this boulder is awesome.. we both had a couple of attempt but feeling weak we didn't get very far, we decided to call it a day..
Another good day and especially for drew getting ladys night ticked, although i didn't manage to finish any of the problems it was still a successful day with allot of progress.. lets hope when i visit Sunday i can bring news of ticking at least one of these problems...

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
