Life with the Caldwells: where parenting, traveling, climbing, and photography collide.

I tried to count up the years since i have been to Hueco Tanks this morning. 12..13..14.. I lost count. The last time I was there overhanging climbing was a relatively new discovery, there were basically no climbing regulations, and I didn't have any chest hair (shoot, I still don't). I am super psyched to get back there and get after it. After a month of skiing, home remodeling, and gym climbing, I am feeling pretty strong. I hope to build some finger strength and callus for the El Cap Proj as well as have a nice relaxing climbing trip with my wife. No portaledges, crazy logistical strategizing, or big hikes with sole crushing loads. Just pure pulling on crimpers in the sun! Heck yeah, bring on the bloody fingertips!
