It was our fourth day on, climbing that is. We met in the Willow Springs parking lot on the Red Rock Conservation Area loop road. Matt asked how I was feeling. I was sore. He was too. Andrew found a partner on Mountain Project. Her name was Sarah or Jess or something. They went to Ragged Edges to warm up. I hung out in the van and played guitar.
After an hour or so they returned to the parking lot. I grabbed my camera bag and climbing gear. We headed south from the parking lot towards Nadia’s Nine (5.10a), a classic climb in Red Rocks that’s infamously stiff.
After Andrew struggled up Nadia’s Nine we headed back towards the parking lot. We stopped at N’Plus Ultra (5.10b) for the last climb of the day.
