Wow. . . so back to Munsusan during the week-- Dave sent his 11d project 4th try! I belayed his last two tries. . .a bit dramatic on the send-- pulling up rope, dropping it, yelling for me to "take" but just the slack (he was above the bolt!!) but an awesome send, and he deserved the rest-day Thursday. I spent a few work-days at the crags, and visited the gyms in town. Oh Haeng-sun, whom we met last weekend, met me one evening for a chat/workout. I'll have to talk to her when I return to Ulsan. Her English is decent, and as of last month, she's the first woman climbing gym manager (I know of) in Korea!! I couldn't believe she's 49! She looks absolutely amazing, no older than me, and she climbs hard 11s!! probably some 12's!
Sat I headed out to Miryang, picking up Ian and Marissa there, and heading to Bueongsae Rock, for some long steep stuff. . . well, the easier stuff that I tried wasn't as long, and dang it was cold and sunless! On the way back to Daegu, it rained, but I have a lot to do this week in Daegu before heading to Wonju (early) for the Meet and Greet!
I am kinda sick of these cold, sunless days!! And the rainy weekends. . . GRRR. I need good photos!!
So no major happenings this week, except being on the periferal of dramas (not unlike Busan!) that do not include me!! Unfortunately, I don't really have the time or energy to "help" my friend in Busan, and I am trying to be in the none-of-my-business mode in Ulsan. . . that said, spending time with a (newly)-21 year old from Ohio has been enlightening, and fun in small doses!
