No media. The Red Rocks sand hurt my camera.

Notes : Alex and I got an alpine sport climbing start, 7:30, only to get be greeted by wind and cold at Cannibal Crag. I was able to finish old business, Baseboy Direct. We retreated the warmth and security of The Gallery. I finished old business there, Yaak Crack. It was only 3/4 day because the weather got progressively worse, the strong winds was blowing rain 2 miles from the canyons to The Gallery. However, I was able to send Desert Pickle right before it started to HAIL! I'm done with Vegas for a little while.
