Rock Climbs: Leavenworth & Index - May 19-21, 2011

Got home early from Denali, enjoyed a day of rest then got three consecutive days of rock climbing in. Here's how it went down:

Sunday - Castle Rock with Ian:
  • Canary (5.8) - Ian's first all-gear lead!
  • South Face, Jello Tower (5.8+) / Midway Direct (5.6)

Monday - Index with Paul:
  • GNS - Sickle Crack (5.7) / Pisces (5.6) / Great Northern (5.6)
  • Godzilla (5.9) - a bit harder than usual, but I got up it.

Tuesday - Index with Seth:
  • GNS - Sickle Crack (5.7) / Blockbuster (5.9) / Taurus (5.7) - first time on Blockbuster, ouch!
  • Breakfast of Champions (5.10a) - followed it clean.
  • Tatoosh (5.10b) - first red point ascent!
  • Shirley (short) (5.10a)
Pulling down was definitely a challenge but it was good to get back at it!
