Rock Climbing at the Exit!

Jim, Amelia, Giaco and Mal came rock climbing with me for three days this week for an Intro to Rock Climbing with Pro Guiding Service.  These guys have some experience already, so our itinerary was more "Intermediate" then "Intro", and tailored more to what they wanted to be able to do afterwards:  lead sport climbs and set up top ropes.

Mal is stoked on his gear anchor.

Mock leading teaches lead belaying and proper rope management.

Giaco demonstrates proper teenager nutrition:  by eating a whole roasted chicken for lunch.

Graduate exercise on the third day:  setting up a top rope on this 5.8.
