I finally got a chance to climb Here. Yesterday after work Tim and I went over to Rattlesnake Ledge. I found the climbing there alot harder than the routes appeared to be. The rock is kind of like Rumney and so are the features of the routes juat smaller. I failed to top out on every route we climbed and my fingers were shot from climbing on the shist (not as sharp as the stuff at rumney). After about 2 hours we pulled out the aidders and did some aid climbing on the bolted routes. Aid Climbing is so much fun!
I didnt bring my camera but I snapped a few shots with my Droid while Tim was setting up the top rope and rappeling down.
Jeremy is trying to finish up his 4K list this summer, and has done quite a bit of hiking already, but I had not had a chance to go with him yet, so I was happy when he asked me if I wanted to go this morning. He needed to be back for noon, so I recomended we do Hale, its one he needed, and I needed it for my second list, and I need a rock for my rock from the summit collection. I picked him up at 3:30am and we were on the summit of Mt Hale by 7am. We went to Pegs in Woodstock for breakfast and were back home at 11am. Usually I bring a beer for the summit when doing a hike, but it was too early for beer today, so I brought stuff to make Mimosas.
My Summit Rock Collection grows by 1. 39 more to go
