Blackstrap Hell Ladder
Mindy, Jim, Ian, James, Don and I had trail monster fun doing the Blackstrap Hell Ladder this morning. It was a good change from the usual group run - by running up and down the same hill, everyone can go there own pace but still see each other every few minutes. For the ladder, we did 1/3 of the climb, then 2/3, then the full climb. Then worked our way down the ladder, then back up. James and I undershot the 2/3 and overshot the 1/3 turnarounds on the way down the ladder so I think it all evened out. Ian did the ladder perfectly but took a few wrong turns on the way down so got in some extra mileage. Don rode his bike to the trailhead so missed the start but caught up with us and showed us all how it was done on the final set climbing back up the ladder.
