Mercedes seems to do extremely well working under pressure. When she found out she was going to Austrailia and wasn't sure exactly when she was supposed to be back, she went into full scale project-send-mode, and the two of us when full scale for an epic climbing weekend! (two weekends ago) Starting on Friday night at Morrison, she did Tendonitis Traverse from the low start first try, in the dark (no pictures). It was 82 degrees when we got back to the cars at 9:30PM. JJ will back me up on giving Merc double points for her send in the heinous conditions.
The next day we went to Red Cliff where she finished off Return of the Jedi V8. In two burns. It was her first V8... she skipped V7.
Alexa joined in on the fun and worked Minturn Mile. She actually does climb when Lucas isn't around.
On Sunday Mercedes and I headed to Emerald to try The Kind. I apparently need more pressure, as I failed to send yet again. I'm going to use the "it was my third day on" excuse for this one...
SO - Congrats to Mercedes! We can't wait for you to come back!
