Had a lot of fun seeing everyone again! A couple people from the next camp over joined us as well, and we had some guitar and banjo music going on for a little while. Really a great group of people. I'm so glad I could meet so many awesome people through this website! And they all seem so talented in the kitchen.. such good treats! ;)

Some of us climbed a little sport the first day. I practiced a little more using the Grigri as a lead belay device. Awkward, but much safer to use that than an ATC in case something unexpected happened to the belayer. Jeff and I thought we'd get the chance to do a two pitch route, but it turned out that the second pitch anchors were a mere 15-20 feet above the first pitch anchors -- a 70m rope was more than sufficient for the whole climb. We didn't realize this at first, and tied two ropes together to set up a good rappel, then headed down. I cleaned the route of everything but the anchor 'biners and one other 'biner on the first pitch.. oops. The knot got stuck and belaying became impossible, so I used the opportunity to practice using the Grigri as an ascender (such as might be useful at Winslow Wall) and pulled myself up. It's exhausting but not impossible, and it was fun to have the chance to try it. Rescued the lone 'biner, then rapped to the bottom and pulled off the extra rope. Phew! Lesson learned for the future. ;) Second day I hung out and read a book while others did sport or multipitch or hiked. Peaceful area for whatever your outdoor needs are.. even just sitting and reading.
