Yesterday we headed to Fields of Joy. There are heaps of great boulders there. Matt onsighted Maniac V7 which was really cool. I could barely do the moves and just gave up. It was a sloper problem, I am shit on slopers!! Pat did Sneak, V5 and was pretty happy with it. His hardest tick of the trip so far. After that we headed round to Dirty Lies boulder where Matt and I both flashed Dirty Lies, V7. We then tried No Late Tenders, V10, with a dude from Germany called Fabi (most probably spelt wrong). We worked through all the moves and Fabi sent it 1st go after unlocking the sequence. Matt came very close but no cigar and I gave up because the holds were too sharp for my wrecked fingers. Matt and I headed over to try Macho King V10. Its a really cool overhung line where you basically crimp in a crack formed from this weird block that creates the line. I had one go from the start and fell half way. I thought the climbing through the crack would be much easier. But after working out all the moves I had another go from the start and got it. It was the first time I did the last move, which is also the crux. Its a weird throw behind your head to a small shelf, on the tip of the overhang, from an undercling and horror sloper.
Today we had a well timed rest day. Fingers are shot and it was rainy and cold. Although every day is cold. We've woken up to ice on the car!!! Crazy for Brissy people. We just sat at home with a fire, climbing movies and green tea. It was great. Roadside is our destination for tomorrow. There's heaps of uber classic lines there and we are all pretty psyched.
