Rock Climb: Outer Space

Dave H. and I climbed Outer Space (5.9) on Snow Creek Wall outside Leavenworth today. It was a beautiful day for climbing - not warm but not particularly cold either. We climbed the seven pitches, over 900 vertical feet, in 7 hrs. By the time we scrambled back to the base the sun was setting and we hiked the two miles back to the car in the dark. Dave forgot his headlamp, but lucky for him I had a spare!

Highlight of the day: seeing a horizontal rainbow hovering directly overhead, created by sunrays filtering through the clouds above. Way cool. Wish I'd had my camera.
