Private Rock Climbing 8-7-2013

Had the pleasure of taking Rhode Island native Manny out for a day of private rock instruction. Manny had climbed with us last year and returned to dial in some of his multi-pitch skills. We started over at Whitehorse Ledge and quickly polished off 600 feet of climbing getting up to Lunch Ledge in just over one hour. We then rappelled back to the ground and headed on over to Cathedral Ledge. A quick rappel down the Barber Wall and a short walk found us below an empty Upper Refuse. We cruised that in style with plenty of time to work on some crack climbing skills at the North End by climbing both Child’s Play and Kiddy Crack.

Outstanding weather, a great partner, 10 pitches of climbing, over a 1,000 feet in total… what’s not to like?
