I went back to Pinnacles today and lead Thrill Hammer, a 5.8+ climb. I had to hang at the 5.8+ part to figure out the moves, but once I did I was able to move past it on lead and complete the climb. It isn’t out of the question for me to think that I might be able to achieve this goal in 2007. Next weekend I climb in Yosemite, but those are trad climbs so I’ll be working on my other climbing goals.

I did Dos Equis in Pinnacles a few years ago, but I’m thinking I’d like to do a 10a in Owens. When I say lead, I want to do it without any hangs. I won’t consider the goal accomplished until I’ve gone up one ground up without falls or hangs.
