rydra_wong: Lisa Rands' chalky hands on the sloper on the route Gaia (climbing -- hands)

The Friday post of glee is where you get to tell us about your climbing-related happiness this week.

It can be a new achievement or adventure, or just that you climbed and had fun; it can be that your favourite climbing wall is expanding or that you bought new rock shoes or that you found a cool ice-climbing vid on YouTube. No glee is too small -- or too big. Members are encouraged to cheer each other on and share the squee.

N.B. Please feel free to post your glee on any day of the week; the Friday glee is just to get the ball rolling.

To enhance this week's glee: these young gentlemen attempt to find UK-style bouldering in Massachusetts -- a valiant effort, but I feel lacking the pervasive greyness, drizzle, and whinging needed for true authenticity, though there are some good efforts at '80s-style Christmas jumpers in the second half.

STILL not allowed to exercise. May get cleared a week from today.

Love the vid!

New Routes! Always good. And I could even climb some of them :)

I love that video, thanks for sharing it! I live in Massachusetts, cool to see the comparison from UK to MA. Interesting to see no top out required for UK style bouldering, and the similarity in rock (lichen! gneiss!)

My glee: Getting my lead head back after a big fall last year. Gym-lead a double-hung 5.10. Going outside again this coming weekend and while I'm planning to climb below grade, know I'm getting my mojo back.
