For my 1st guiding day of 2009’s rock season I was happy to meet Nat and his two sons Alex and Thomas for a “First Ascent” rock climbing program.

It’s about a 10 minute hike up to where we would start some basic rock climbing:

Thank you guys for a great day out… the rain held out, the climbing was good… and the Oreo’s delicious. Hope to see you back here for some more!
