Photo of the Week: April 22-28

Hello Again,

Yesterday I got the opportunity to do my first traditional climbing lead. Traditional climbing is when the lead climber clips the rope into “cams” or “nuts” they he or she has placed into cracks. Bolting crack climbs is strictly prohibited due to the damage it can cause the rock. Traditional (trad) clmbing is something that has eluded me until yesterday and I must say that I am now hooked. The climb was called Queen Vic and was rated a modest 5.7, but the day could not have gone better. Here is a photo I snagged just as I finished rappelling to the ground from the top. The light was hitting the gap between the two spires just perfectly and I got it just in time.

Tomorrow I will be uploading a video of the adventure (not much actual climbing footage unfortunately) and maybe some more images. Till then, enjoy!
