The Empire Strikes Back

Today I climbed The Empire Strikes Back 8a+ at Cheddar gorge. I climbed the route in two short sessions it probably took 5 or 6 redpoint goes. It was really nice to climb this route just before leaving for my European climbing trip because I was under the impression that I was pretty out of shape from all the work/not climbing that I have been doing. Hopefully this ascent will inspire me to greater things on the continent. I look forward to trying the extention to this route  “Death Star” 8c on my return. Ed climbed Homegrown today as well. It was really nice to see some hard routes go down, gets the psych pumping.
