Lynn came up from Portsmouth today with a little bit of gym climbing and Pawtuckaway top-roping experience under her belt. She hadn’t done any multi-pitch climbing yet and wanted to work on her fear of heights & exposure. An avid runner and outgoing person I knew we would have a great day together. We started our morning at Whitehorse Ledge and climbed 4 pitches of Beginner’s Route to work on building trust in both our feet, and the climbing system.
We drove over to Cathedral Ledge and grabbed some lunch after checking out the new trail work happening up there.
After grabbing a bite to eat up top we made out way down to the top of the Barber Wall and rapped down Chicken Delight.
Over to Upper Refuse we went…
Despite having some very real issues with heights & exposure Lynn pushed herself quite a bit outside her “comfort” zone and made some great progress through-out the day. With trips planned to bigger peaks in Central America I hope to see her up here again pushing herself and gaining confidence on the rock.
