6-10-09 Intro to Multi-Pitch Rock Climbing

I had the great pleasure of guiding Danielle and Danielle on Cathedral Ledge today. Two very out going young women who both work for EMS stores in Massachusetts, but had only met a month prior. The way these two got along made me think they were lifelong friends, and I really enjoyed introducing them to the aspects of multi-pitch rock climbing while we scaled Upper Refuse on Cathedral Ledge.

 

On the hike to the climb we got this view of nearby Whitehorse Ledge

We started with a refresher on rappelling, and rapped down the Barber Wall

Thank you both for a great day, hope to see you on the cliffs soon!
