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.|
