Here are more photos of my first climb of the day at LongDong. The route was supposed to be a 5.9, but I hadn't warmed up, so I had a lot of trouble seeing the foot and handholds, as the distressed expression on my face reveals. My lame attempts at smearing weren't particularly effective, either. Eventually, called it a day and later finished some other routes, including one that was supposed to be an easy 5.10. Who knows?
Finally, a "sun-kissed" trio of James, Melissa, and me. Yes, I realize my new haircut is still not visible. That will come later.
