Super Angie...cookie monster

So, two nights ago I  had Rick put me through a hard core body builder's workout. I did around 50 squats with weights, and two days later, I am still feeling it! I also did pull ups and heaven knows what else...it was HARD. Then yesterday, we took the kids rock climbing and I wanted one of those yummy cookies from the cafe...you know the ones if you have ever visited the gym. But with my diet ( yes, I'm still going hard core and still loosing fat), I can't have a cookie. So Rick made me a deal--do three 5.10s without weighting the rope and I can have a cookie.

First one up: 5.10- blue on the arete near the cracks. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Then Rick sent an awesome green arete one...NICE WORK baby!

Second one: yellow 5.10 on rainbow wall. I had done this one a long time ago, and while climbing it way back when, a hold snapped in half. I had told staff about this broken hold, but they never replaced it. So, I'm climbing it awesome and suddenly, I come to the broken hold and with my height, there is no place to go. I'm determined though not to weight the rope, and eventually make it past the point only to end up super PUMPED three moves from the top. Dang it! I weight the rope. I finish the route and come down defeated. Rick gives me a cookie point for it though, since the route is missing a hold.

Then Rick tries a 5.9 with TINY holds...he gets half way up it and then wants to come down. His doctor had him do a test with his hands and it turns out they are totally messed up. He doesn't want to over crip on tiny holds, so he comes down. Good choice baby!

Third one: I tried a new green 5.10.  Same holds as my favorite 5.8  HOLY SNOT! This is NOT a 5.10. Maybe a 5.10d but I think its a 5.11.   Anyway, I end up finishing the route, but I did come off a lot and have to weight the rope. It took me around 10 minutes to finish it. Rick gave me a third cookie point because of how hard I tried on the route. Seriously, it is now my project. I want to red point it. Its an awesome route...lots of thinking involved. 

So, I got my cookie (pink autum leaf shape) and throughly enjoyed every second of eating it. YUMMMMMM.... Me like cookie!
