Excuse Station – Pic of the Day

[singlepic id=112 w=400  float=left] We arrived at the base of the the Reservoir Wall beneath the climb Excuse Station (5.11).  For the girls it would be more of a hand crack and perhaps would serve as a warm up.  I offered to go first so I could photograph the girls on the climb.  Excuse Station is so not a warm up for me.  It feels like solid 5.12 with my big hands.  One hundred and twenty feet of tight hands and finger stacks.  A brutal way to start the day.  I did get the rope on the climb and the photos were worth it though.
