Saturday the 21st was a beautiful day in Alabama, and the ACC took full advantage. A dozen members arrived to partake of the climbing at Palisades Park, many arriving right at opening time. Climbers in attendance
We got started on the south side of things. It didn’t take long before we were trading top-ropes on the area classics. As the day wore on, numbers dwindled as we worked our way northward. By the end of the day only 6 remained, and we wrapped things up and headed out a little before sunset. A few of the climbs we did
- Elephant Crack
- Unnamed 5.8 (Gary’s favorite!)
- Box Lunch
- Marginal Monster
- Posey’s Pass
- Trivial Pursuit
- Captain Crunch
Gene was awarded the Sending Chain, for making quota for the day and generally doing a great job with lots of challenging climbs.
The final 6 climbers headed to Mi Casita for some Mexican food and beers, where we were treated to some very well-sung — and very LOUD — country karaoke. After eating and drinking our fill we headed back home for some well-deserved rest.
