Rock Climbs: Erie and Index

Busy week. On Monday Paul and I went to Mt. Erie, mainly so I could scope out sites for a top-roping class I'm leading on Saturday the 9th. I don't go to Erie much - not my bag of tea. After over an hour of following rabbit trails we manage to find the crag we were looking for: Sunset Slabs. It's a good toprope site w/ a range of climbs from 5.2 to 5.9 - we gave them all a try.

Thursday and Friday were spent at Index (way more interesting than Erie). Thursday Mark and I climbed Princely Ambitions (5.10a) and on Great Northern via Taurus/Pisces (5.7). Friday Katrina, Payge, Ross and I spent the morning at the Inner Wall where I led Toxic Shock (5.9) and Corner Flash (5.7). Katrina and I each took a shot at Even Steven (5.11b) on TR. I managed everything but the crux move - took several falls in the process. Not bad for my first 5.11 finger crack!

Next up: Labor Day weekend @ Smith Rock w/ Paul. :)
