Rock Climbing --- 4/14/2007 --- Gunks
After that we went to Erect Direction and climbed the 5.8 first pitch. It was awkward and surprisingly hard to protect given that it follows a vertical crack the entire way. But the crack flares and there is lots of loose rock. Otherwise it is a fun climb.
Next we went to climb Arrow and Aramy led both pitches. A nice classic which I hadn't climbed in several years. We finished the day on Raubenheimer Special (5.7) and I linked both pitches in a 185' stretch to the top. The balance moves just before the crux are the highlight of this route.
After we finished I continued to Connecticut to spend a few days with my family. Don't have a whole lot of pictures from the day because, as Aramy says, "We are here to climb!"
