met ethan, darryl, chris, and some friends from flagstaff in joes last weekend. I was super pysched to go there since it had been a year since the last time and I felt like I made some progress in my climbing since then. So going there would be a good benchmark to measure my progress, regardles of joes being notoriously soft. Also I could get some delicious butterfinger donuts from the food ranch, no joes trip is complete without one.

Before I went I made a list of potential boulder problems I would want to try, thinking I would just session a few of the them and not actually send them all. Getting there and climbing the first day I did three of the problems on my first day and the first two I did first try, so I was pretty psyched to see how this trip was going to pan out. In the end I did everything on the list plus some. It was awesome to just walk up to boulders look at the holds tell yourself the holds are good you can hold them and you can just do so just get it done and move onto the next one. Its also great to finally have such a big progress after so many tiny breakthroughs.
