Chong Phli – Day 54

Today was the first day of climbing in almost two weeks since getting back from Isan.  I was both excited and a little nervous to get back on the rock, wondering how much strength I had lost.  So I decided to ease back into it.  First I put up Zak Attack 5 to warm up.  Anong also led it then I climbed it one more time on top rope to clean it.  Then we moved over to EFZ 6a+ .  That also went well.  Anong climbed it on top rope and I also climbed it one more time on top rope to clean it.

I was feeling good about my climbing and had my sights set on McLovin 6b next but it was not meant to be.  Nature was conspiring against me today.  It has started raining a little bit which means there are a lot more mosquitos out now.  It seems like a minute after I got to the crag I had a dozen mosquito bites and the itching was starting to annoy me.  Annoyingly, my left elbow also started hurting me while belaying Anong on her last climb.  That combined with some ominous looking clouds and the distant sound of thunder we decided to call it a day.

Now back in my room it has started raining so it was a good decision.  I can relax, rehab my elbow, and think about what I want to climb tomorrow.
