For those of you who have read this blog before, you might remember that Josh and I had been planning to do a multipitch climb at Seneca Rocks in West Virginia recently; this was rained out by a torrential downpour, and was the start of my bad luck with the weather.
We finally got to pull it off, and we even had beautiful weather. I’d gloat that my luck with the weather appears to have turned, but I have to patrol on Old Rag on Saturday and I don’t want to jinx it.
Our group was made up of Josh, my dad Lester, and myself. Our climb was three pitches in length, and was made up of selections from three different routes; the first pitch of Le Gourmet (5.4), followed by the second pitch of Front C (5.6) followed by Critter Crack (5.6). The rock was amazing.
Josh did a great job drawing spiritual lessons from the climb, and you can read all about it at his blog here.
You can also watch the video that Josh and I put together!
