Saturday I headed up to El Rito with Leigh, Justin, Arthur, Tobi, Jen, Ben, Tim, and Curran for some climbing and camping. Somehow I couldn't figure out how to get up Crest Chewel (5.9+) and had to rest for a bit at the top. Then I climbed Slacker Ken (5.9) on top rope. On the rap down I didn't have an ATC, so I muntered and half way down, went penduluming off the arete and out into space to everyone's surprise. Lead Herbie Goes Bananas (5.7) for Arthur, top roped Tooth Fairy (5.10b) but cheated a little by stemming off the back wall. Then I made it all the way up to the 1st bolt on bolting barbie (5.12a) before calling it a day. Nice camp fire, marshmallows, and brews to celebrate.

On the way home in the morning, I stopped off for soccer in Bernalillo. We had a nice 8-1 route to boost our spirits.
