Week in Rock Part 3

After a great day climbing, Dan joined me to watch an inspiring slideshow by Jim Donini, one of my personal heroes and truly a living legend in American and international alpinism.  The show was hosted by Leavenworth Mountain Sports and sponsored by the American Alpine Club.  You should support LMS if you pass through Leavenworth, and join the AAC if you're not a member!

On Sunday a group led by Donini and AAC Regional Coordinator Eddie Espinosa headed up to the Pearly Gates.  Duncan and I climbed a handful of really great 5.8's, but kept it mellow and called it a day after 6 pitches.  On Monday we tried to check out some of the road-side crags, but the threatening weather finally delivered and put a stop to our weekend in the midst of climbing Dogleg Crack (5.8+).  So I visited with some Leavenworth friends before heading back to Seattle.  It was a full week of rock - and I hope its a promise of what's to come this summer!

Dinner at South.
