The golden ticket

The golden ticket

Recently I have been trying my project The Golden Ticket 5.14c/d.  This is a beautiful line located in the Red River Gorge.  It is for sure one of the best sport routes in the U.S.A.  It is a world class line on gorgeous sandstone.  

 Anyhow, things were off to a great start with rapid progress and lots of psyche.  Well, I broke a hold off.  Whoops!  I then gave it week off because I was honestly frustrated and my skin was falling to pieces.  With the air drying as fall transitions to winter the grade or difficulty of the climb becomes irrelevant to me.  It simply becomes a greater challenge.  

That being said I love the pursuit and how I grow from the process.  One week till I leave for Argentina for the Petzl Roc Trip!!
