Private Rock Climbing Cathedral Ledge 6-9-2013

Had an excellent day out today with Chris and Alan. Both had previous canyoning experience and some sport climbing under their belts but hadn’t done much Trad Climbing. We started with a quick climb up Upper Refuse, followed by some anchor building skills at the North End, then a few laps on the Thin Air Face. Great day, great weather, great time. Looking forward to our next climb together!

  1. David,
    Thanks do much for a great day. Love the pics.
    Your knowledge, critique and recommendations were appreciated. Super safe…..Super fun! The exposure on Upper Refuse was fantastic.
    Alan and I are planning to hit a ton of sports routes to work on our skills then get back up there with you on Thin Air and anything else up there!
    Not to rush summer along… but I am looking forward to getting on some ice with you.
    Thanks again.
    Peace

    • It was my pleasure Chris! Looking forward to seeing some of the video you captured once the editing is done!
