For a couple reasons, I did not climb nearly enough this year. Now I finally got on a route yesterday, after arriving in Joshua Tree like 2 weeks ago.

Definitely need to get back on the horse and ride.

But, I did show up every time this season for trailwork, so at least I got that workout, and to talk to people I don't see other than at the crag. Still,enough people said "Haven't seen you and Teddy at the cliffs" to know I had been derelict in my climbing life.
