First Multi-Pitch

Usually we read stories of incredibly hard climbs, with super human feats of derring-do. This is a story of someone’s first 5.7 multi-pitch climb at Red Rocks, Nevada. Something well within the range of us mere mortals. This quote is a little over-the-top maybe, but I like it:

“Multi pitch climbing is like a song, each pitch a stanza and each belay station a chorus.”

And this quote:

“I didn’t want my first multi-pitch experience to be tainted by any leader fright. Besides, leading is overrated.”
