Choss Roof

My fitness is beginning to return. I have been climbing nearly exclusively at the Choss Roof in the Hinterlands. This massive cave is amazing. Full on route tactics are employed on the roof. There are a few bats that fly around at night fall as well.  I did the second ascent of Hydra today.  I did the third ascent of the Dirty Cash a few sessions previously.  Today I repeated Dirty Cash for your video viewing pleasure. The only other zone I have been climbing at is Mars Roof to build power. Mars roof also serves as a good circuit to see how I am feeling and progressing towards where I was at pre-injury. I sessioned the Mars Roof Tuesday night after the second of three days doing clinicals in the Tuba City ER. Any time I go to a clinical I have to wake up at 3:30 am to account for the hour time difference, as well as the hour and a half commute. This taken into account I did a night sesh with Jake. I was able to complete one of the lines on the roof, Lolita. I progressed on the other lines and fell on either the last move or end of each climb.

Here are two videos from Choss Roof called Hydra and Dirty Cash.
