Hueco 3

So I got super close on Nagual the other day - I fell from the end twice. Then I tweaked my pinkie finger... It didn't hurt at all and at first I thought it was just my knuckle cracking. It wasn't until I tried to weight it again that I realized something was actually wrong. Now it feels swollen but doesn't look it, and I can't crimp at all - not a good thing in Hueco. I can grab open-hand holds and I still have full range of motion but I'm super bummed that I'm not going to be able to finish Nagual or anything else this trip.

Before I hurt myself though I managed to finish Slashface and I'm happy about that. I took some shots of Brad trying it. Here's one:

I was also able to climb The Flame (v11), The Egg (v8), and Loaded Direct (v11 or 12?). Now I'll be taking some time off and I'm happy to be going home for Christmas on Tuesday. Good food and fun await. I'm also gonna be working on editing footage from the trip.

Until next time,

  1. Stinks about the finger...I had the exact same thing happen to my left pinky back in late summer and still cant crimp on it like I'd like to. Hope it heals quick and we hear more about your awesome sends soon!
