Saturday morning was a bit chilly, but much nicer than the day before! After a hearty breakfast we decided to break camp due to the coming rain and spend a second day in the North Forty. We continued to climb routes that I had never been on which was the highlight of the trip for me! I know some people skip over the routes below their grade, but for me I want to climb them at least once since this is our "home crag" and it is easy to get to. I've found some really enjoyable 5.8's because of this. After another nearly full day of climbing we left the ranch around 5:00. By the time we were North of Harrison we hit the rain and it stayed with us most of the way home. We all hated to leave a day early, but are grateful we did as it rained all day Sunday in Northern Arkansas. I am really looking forward to getting back to HCR next month and working on ticking off some more unclimbed routes!

1. I finally remembered to climb this route with out traversing right onto Frankenberry!
2. I had 2 takes at the crux. I'll get it next time!
3. This is a great route as it has some nice moves. Definitely one of my favorites!
