Cold Climbing

Anna and I tried to go out to "French's Dome" a rock climbing crag near Mt. Hood. Although the town it is near, ZigZag, was plenty warm and had no snow, I didn't realize that 6.2 miles away was 6.2 miles that went up hill, and so by the time we got to the crag the road was impassable due to the snow.
We turned around and went to Salmon River Slab instead, which is very nearby. It was lower elevation and warm enough to climb. It was really nice, but it was a bit wet. There was a 9+ that I climbed which I felt was more like a 10+. It was a nice challenge, as I had to find a different route to avoid the wet.
It's Jenn's birthday tomorrow, so we're going to go to dinner with her & Carlos. Hurray!
