Jessica, Patti and I started climbing the walls around 11ish.
Patti: Which one?And, so, I chose strength over balance.
Me (I look at The End of 2010 and Jack and the Bean Stalk): The End of 2010 -- the lesser of two evils.
Patti: That one is harder than Jack. The End is all about strength and Jack is all about balance.
Me: That's my problem -- balance.
Patti: That's what we always say -- that Andrea is so unbalanced.
As we were winding down, the three of us decided to do laps and it turned into a contest. I couldn't walk straight afterwards but it definitely felt good to do a gut check. I just didn't do a deep enough check.
I watched in disbelief as Patti hopped on the wall for the 11th time (in addition to the other seven routes she had climbed), Jessica (who talked all kind of smack about my rate of ascension etc.) advised me not to go first next time.
Basically, Patti ran a clinic on hitting a wall then busting through it.
