8-17-09 Rock Climbing with Ray

Ray came up from vacationing in Southern New Hampshire to try rock climbing outside after getting a taste of it on an indoor wall. While the temps went over 90 we found a nice shady top-rope on the Thin Air face of Cathedral Ledge.

In the afternoon we decided to do some multi-pitch. This is looking down the 1st pitch of Upper Refuse.

Ray, thanks for coming up and climbing with me today. It was a pleasure despite the hottest day of the summer! Hope to see you and Dad up here again for some more climbing!
