I took an easy ascent up the backside of Green before descending the frontside on shitty legs. I didn’t seem to have much energy at all. Shortly after the new ladder installment on Saddlerock I ran into JV and Juerek and felt obligated to joint them for another trip to the summit. My legs started to feel a little better this time around. We descending the West Ridge and Long Canyon before heading over to the summit of Flagstaff. I was glad to finally have some decent energy in my legs for the trip down.
