Red Wing Monday

IMG_0865Pete & I climbed with William on Monday at RW. We’d met William bouldering at VE. He’s a strong boulderer but had never roped climbed outdoors. So, of course, he wanted to do a lead at Red Wing. Not some of the easier ones Pete and I suggested, but this one. We spent a few minutes on the ground explaining how you clip the bolts and then he climbed to the top quick as you please. Pretty amazing for his first lead anywhere and one of his first climbs at RW.

Then Pete tried leading on only natural pro using these slung rocks. More photos here.
