Rock Climb: Index - Godzilla/Breakfast of Champions

Spent the morning at Index with Tom. He's a better climber than I so I had the opportunity to push my grade. We started off with the Index classic, Godzilla (5.9+) - a series of strenuous lie-backs on a flake and dihedral cracks topped off with an airy traverse and mantle. We finished the day on Breakfast of Champions (5.10a), a slightly overhung hand crack that we reached by climbing Roger's Corner (5.9). Breakfast worked me over but the jams were solid and I managed to top out without a fall. Felt good to challenge my abilities near their limit.
