“I took a very mentally refreshing whip to my man cakes,” Dante Jubert reports after this fall on the slabby Something on the Shield (5.10) outside of Steamboat Springs, CO.
“I was feeling really solid on what were not-so-solid smears on the polished granite. Before I knew it I whipped [and] slid sideways on my right man cheek.” The metaphor continues: “Needless to say I lowered off to check if any icing was taken off the cake.”
All was well, but Jubert was horrified to find his knife had been along for the ride in his back pocket during the fall: “I [was] thankful that I didn’t take a slice of cake home.” Good grief…
Happy Friday, and be safe out there this weekend.
