More Struggles on 5.10

My right big toe is still massively messed up from our second attempt on the Bells. My feet froze and didn't fully warm up until we had got clear back to the car (11 miles away) and drove an hour to Glenwood Springs. I hope to see some improvement soon. This pain had me pulling my shoes off after each 40-foot route.

I did only 5.10 routes today, but I had my troubles. I started fine with a 10a, 10b, 10b, and then a 10d. All clean, but I was pushed to my very limits on the last two. I then tried a harder 10d and hung four times at two different locations.

I then moved to another location and did a 10b and then hung on another 10b before finishing. Ugh. I'll keep working on it and hope for some gradual improvement.
