Great anchors at top for rap.
After we climbed Pinnacle, we headed to Camelback for a trip up the Praying Monk. I did not realize there was so much climbing around Camelback. I led the East Face for my second lead of the day. It was an awesome climb and cool summit to hang out on. in fact, I would say one of my favorite climbs in my early climbing career: Easy climbing, but that exposure is something. After a small celebration on the summit and some beers we rapped down the other side. I got my first experience with a hanging belay on the way down to add to my list of new skills/experiences picked up on the day. Hard to believe today marks about two months since I took someone up on a random offer to go climbing.
