Rock Climb: Roger's Corner/Breakfast of Champions

In an effort to avoid the hordes of climbers expected to descend on the Lower Town Wall this Saturday, Gene and I drove to Index and climbed Roger's Corner (5.9) and the ultra-classic crackfest Breakfast of Champions (5.10a) Friday morning. The weather was splitter and so was the rock. I've been training hard this winter - trimming down, lifting, running - and it's paid off: I cruised Breakfast of Champions, my first clean 5.10 lead at Index. Been wanting that for some time now - felt good to get it done. We'd hoped to run some long top rope laps on the two climbs, but time ran short and we reluctantly acquiesced to other commitments - me to work and Gene to shoveling wood chips in his back yard. :-(
