The best part of the climb…

… Is sometimes just getting down. We had an excellent weekend camping and climbing in Vedauwoo. I will never get tired of this place. We climbed routes we have been on before, but even little changes make them exciting still. In the case of this weekend, we climbed all three pitches of Walt’s Wall (with Rachel), and then rappelled the whole route with two ropes. That was a looooong (200ft) rappel.

The shot below was from the end of the day Saturday. Last summer, Mark and I climbed up to the top of this formation with Tom, and did this same rappel. That was one of the most exciting, wildest, scariest, most wonderful rappels I have ever done! I finally ended up in the right place at the right time to get a picture of somebody else doing the same thing.
