Route climbing, Ive noticed, has various benefits over bouldering. Not that I'm only just now noticing these various pluses on the board for ropes versus pads, because there are a lot and I did once upon a time tie into a sting to get my climb on, but I find myself remembering all the wonderful things about climbing. Plus number one, a pack that is slim and doesn't catch wind or double in weight when it rains. Plus number two, you don't have to climb at your peak to get a good pump going. Plus number three, safer. Number four, pretty awesome. Number five, you get to wear a fancy nylon diaper yada yada yada the point is I like it and want to do it more often again. I don't care who with it would just be nice to go get a little scared and try something a little different. Even though I'm a giant pansy.
