Iron Cross Boulderエリアでできた課題はいくつかリピートしたのとThanksgiving Smokeout V4**程度。あいにく長ーーーいLoadies Dream V8***ができなくて残念。
ちょっと移動してThe Heart Boulderエリアへ。The Heart of Glass V4とThe Scoop V6***は相変わらずあり得ないｗ でも他の岩でいくつかV5を完登した。
この日の夜は岩場で出会ったカメラマンのJamesも含めてRhode Island州のProvidenceのUnion Station Breweryという地ビールを出すレストランへ行った。JamesとはM師匠を通じて以前に連絡を取ったことがあった人で、今日たまたま初めて会うことができて感動した。

taka, Shiro (our dog) and I had trip to Lincoln Woods; the temperature is around 97 degrees in forecast. We stayed at hotel close to Lincoln, RI.
Saturday we left our house 7am and with traffic, we arrived at Lincoln Woods at around 11:15am. It was bit cooler because park is in the woods. We parked our car at parking lot close to the gate but suddenly squall hit the area... Oh shiiiiit.
While it gets dried, we had lunch and bought some beer:) At around 3:30pm, we started to climb. Outside was roughly 90 degrees or so with high humidity.
I have finished several V4s, one V5, one V6 in the hottest day.
Iron Cross V4**** was good gymnastic traverse, big jugs:) Neil's Lunge V4*** was balancy and reach problem. I donno if there is shorter people move but I was able to finish it... felt hard because of reach issue but managed to finish by matching a smaller hold. Hats Off V6**, I flashed it. I though it was easier problem for shorter person because of close heel hooks. Sit Down Traverse V5*** was good traverse problem but not in the humid day because you have to stick to many slopey holds.
Anyway, the rating was fare but depends on your technique, I personally is better doing traverse due to less reach issues. However today, anything above V5 was too hot to climb... I just didn't have that much of motivation to do hard stuff.
