I'm a few trips behind, forgive the slacking but I've been outside climbing. I'm not sorry. :)
Last week Phil, Andrew Caraballo and myself climbed out at Post Falls. I didn't take many photos, but here's what I have from them leading Dolly Parton (10b).
I am amazed at Phil, he hasn't climbed in four months and can count how many lead climbs he's done on his fingers and he hopped right on.
After a false start (That's Andrew getting intimately acquainted with the bush that we later tied back) he did really well.
Throwing for the big move:
Little bit of stemming:
All things said and done he did really well for not having climbed in months and not having climbed the route before. He is aiming to get it clean next time.
Andrew's Turn, hooking the start:
Sticking the big move, no problem:
Andrew's first big whiiiiiipppppeerrrrrrrrr!
