Rock Climb: Index Town Wall - May 19, 2011

With summer weather finally here I spent another day at the Lower Wall, this time with Jacy. Since it was his first time at Index, I got things started at Great Northern Slab with a lead of the Aries fist crack and corner (5.8). I'd hoped to go up the chimney too, but it was wet and I was forced to skirt around it. Then I led the upper pitch of Taurus (5.7).

GOOD TIMES IN THE SUN!


Jacy was lovin' it. I decided to up the ante and rapp'ed to the base of Breakfast of Champions (5.10a). It was a solid lead - probably my easiest so far. Jacy did quite well following - just a few falls, but he figured it out. Not bad for his first real jam-crack!

Back on the ground we ran into my buddy Hunter. He'd just arrived with his friend Sarah to climb on GNS. Jacy and I headed over to Godzilla next. It was a tad busy and we had to wait our turn, but it was worth it - no way Jacy was going to miss climbing this classic today! All in all, for my last bit of rock climbing before guiding season it was a great day.
