Rock Climb: Lower Town Wall - Apr 23, 2011

Saturday was a brilliant summer-like day. Expecting a crowd, Ian and I arrived at Index early and began climbing at 8:30 a.m. We warmed up on Godzilla (5.9), getting in three laps each, including Ian's first lead on pre-placed gear. By 11 a.m. it was getting busy. Princely Ambitions (5.9) was open however and I led both pitches. From the top of Princely we scrambled over to the anchors above Breakfast of Champions (5.10a), rappelled and got in a lap each. It was pretty warm by then, so after rappelling from the top of Princely we relaxed in the shade and watched a couple gals climb Thin Fingers before heading to the river to enjoy a few brews.

Equation of the day:
  • 600 feet of vertical granite crack climbing + sunshine = bliss :)
