I am not really sure what routes we climbed at the pond, I don't own a guide and until recently I have really disliked the pocket style climbing, in that area. After a few recent trips there I have decided, it's not a bad winter climbing destination because of its warm temps.
Joel and I actually had time off together so without a lot of notice we headed to the QC! The approach is a little "fun" especially if you are expecting to hike down into some place with a lovely pond.
I have learned a lot of things since I have started climbing and MANY of these things completely contradict each other. Because of this, I have a very informative (probably confusing) way of teaching people. I have developed many, well thought out systems that are based on what I have been taught, plus what I have learned through my own experiences. Poor Joel; he had no idea what he was in for! ;)
I think that the best way to learn to belay is to have someone give you tips while you have someone on lead belay. We did not have that option so we worked things out ourselves. It was a low key, trust building day filled with mutual support and a lot laughter.
He is a quick learner and has so much natural talent and understanding for the sport. For example; I had just finished telling him about catching the rope near the end so he decided to give it a try. On his very first try he did unbelievably well!

Great day!
