Climbing in Lake Dixon
I've never been to Lake Dixon before, despite it being a reasonable 4 miles away from my house. We climbed Y crack (5.7), Butthole Express (5.8), and Hairy Airy (5.9). I had a lot of fun despite the hardest problem all day being a 5.9.
I hear people use the term "grade bagging" and I am starting to realize that I do this. The only reason I would think I don't is because I have nothing to brag about. I'm going to have to work on that. There is a big jump between grades, and at the end of the day, it shouldn't affect how much fun I have if I climb a 5.9 or a 5.10. It just affects how beat up I feel at work on monday.
