Day 5

Coyote Call Temescal Canyon up to radio tower 1:05

Climb stated casual, but got a bit more intense past the waterfall. Left the loop at about 19 minutes and walked for a bit then climbed over skull rock and up to the radio tower in 39 minutes. Peter (a semi-elite 5k/10k racer) joined our group and pushed the climb pretty hard in none other than nike frees. We caught our breath, enjoyed the view and took off back down the ridge. My hamstrings were still a bit sore from my little Sand Dune park workout the day before, and my worn out xt wings were making the fast descent a bit treacherous so I let Jimmy and Peter take off. I still came down fast and negative split by 14 minutes, 3.5 miles downhill in 26 minutes.
