I got a new easy lead in along the Headwall on the way to the Praying Monk. I think we may have walked up it yesterday, but it only took ten minutes to get the rope out and run a line for Jackie. I think beta says there is six bolts to the top, but I only used four quick draws, its a pretty light climb, I did it with a big backpack loaded down with water, beer and coffee.

The Praying Monk is a fun climb with cool summit and I enjoyed it again. I led the route and then top belayed for Jackie as she followed and cleaned it. We enjoyed the summit with a fun couple, passed around a little wine and watched the clouds closely. Then it was the fun rap down. Jackie was not a huge fan of the hanging rappel, but I think its kind of fun.

On the hike out we were lucky enough to watch four BASE jumpers take some jumps. It was pretty spectacular.
