Minor Victory

I try to climb at the local gym a couple of times a week. I'd always been afraid of the tallest pillar, which usually has 5.11s through 5.12s on it. But there's a lowly 5.10c (or d?) route towards the highest top-rope-able anchor in the building.

There's a picture of the pillar here.

Anyway, I gave it a try today. I warmed up on a couple of easy routes, abandoned all hope, and powered my way up it! I was blown afterwards, but I'm happy!

Yea, me!
