Rock Climb: Lower Town Wall - Aug 28, 2010

Had a lovely day of cragging with Chad Saturday at Index. Warmed up on Godzilla (5.9 - Chad's lead), then some folks over on Thin Fingers were kind enough to let us piggy-back on their rope and set up a TR. I actually sent the route (5.11a) clean - pretty cool! Moved over to GNS where I linked the Aries fist crack, the corner finger crack and the flared chimney together. That was a big mistake: too much rope drag as I floundered up the chimney and I hung on my gear once before a final, desperate grovel to the belay. Chad lead the upper pitch of Taurus (5.7) then it was beer-thirty by the river. :-)
