The other side

Hueco Tanks, Texas, USA. At first, bouldering seems successful, happy, and almost perfect. Some good ascents are made, then nature does its own. Unexpected high temperatures physically stop good ascents and cause unhappiness; followed by stubborn defiance of conditions, pain in fingers and cracked skin. Climbers have to satisfy with easier ascents, due to circumstances and wait till another time for harder ascents.
