Rock climbing at Index.
We climbed the 5.9 "Godzilla". It was nice and featured a right facing flake as well as some thin hand crack. The granite was beautiful.
This was Chipper's first ever trad (real) climb. He was gripped, he did fantastic.
You can see when he joined me on the ledge, he wasn't in a great mood. After we took in the view moral increased and we went down for lunch and then kayaking.
We now have a limited edition release of this single bag lot from Hacienda Santa Rosa on our shelves. Yep, Gustavo only had about 150 lbs worth of yield and we got it all. It's a new micro plot surrounded and isolated by forest corridors on all sides. This plot has similar elevation to Buena Esperanza. High nitrogen soil and it's planted under the existing rustic hardwood canopy. This is a beautiful plot and a beautiful coffee. Available at @barismo171 and @barismo364.
