Want to enter the Lightning Pro giveaway today??? Tell me, when was the last time you got good and scared??? 😱😱😱 @jenny.lemonpie here for day 4 of my @bluewaterropes takeover and let’s be real, sometimes badassery happens and sometimes you don’t have it in you. I’ve taken big enough falls and been seriously injured enough to give myself a free pass to back off if I just don’t have it or don’t want it. Sometimes it’s a really gnarly fall or sketchy gear, sometimes it’s even the approach that gets in your head.
On this route in Cochise it wasn’t the 5.10+ friction slab that got to me, it was the rotten 5.7 chimney above with shallow gear stuffed into choss pockets I could flake away with my fingertips. 40ft over the only piece I was convinced would hold a fall and not wanting to commit to the “improbable looking traverse” I down climbed the entire thing and bailed off the last bolt on the friction slab. And I’m totally fine with that. Does it mean I can’t climb a 5.7 chimney in Cochise? Nope 👎, it means the risk assessment totally wasn’t worth it to me. My partner and I rallied to get after a two pitch 5.12 the next day and I have no regrets at all about the creepy chimney I didn’t finish. 🤨 What was the last thing that totally freaked you out??? 📸 @tc.bukowski •
