On March 5, 2006 I climbed Seal Rock in the central Flatirons with Fabio, Amy, and Charles. The weather was beautiful and the climb was really nice. With Fabio's 70m rope we were able to make it in 4 pitches and Charles and Amy took 5. The rappel of the north face was wild!
This was also my first trip with my new video camera - a Panasonic GS150. It performed fairly well. I was very happy with my carrying case which worked nicely for technical climbing. I found that I'm often not steady enough to hold the camera still for the 10x optical zoom and that the lens gets dirty easily. I hope to further hone my movie making skills this season, but for a first attempt, I was pretty happy with this one.
