Sunday brought another unsuccessful run on the Proxima Project at the Jupiter Boulders. This sexy little number can be seen in green, and despite Ian (looking good above), Alan, and two days, it still goes unconquered. Luckily she's smooth on the moves, so I don't mind another round.
However, I did get the FA of Cassiopeia (V8), our lady in red. She's named after the geometric position of your body for the first move - amazing pinch with the right hand, large right foot equally high. The queen Cassiopeia, after which the constellation was named, was punished by Poseidon for boasting of her unrivaled beauty. While this problem is on one of the best boulders in SoCal, she certainly isn't more beautiful than all the Nereids, the nymph-daughters of the sea god Nereus. Or the boulders of Font for that matter. Oh, to be traveling in the summertime...
