Yesterday Emily called me and sang “Happy Birthday” on my voicemail. It was pretty incredible. Especially considering it was from around 7:30 in the morning. And then the message immediately following that was my mom singing “Happy Birthday.” They were similar :-)
The bouldering comp at Hound Ears was good. I thought I did alright, considering that I don’t do all that much bouldering, especially outdoors on sharp rock. There are some really good routes there (am I supposed to call them “problems”?). The main area nearer to the picnic tables was much more crowded than the other areas, and with good reason. Also, I bet there are some other really good routes farther away (we only stayed at the big clump of boulders just below the turnaround at the top of the hill).
