Here is an album dedicated to my practice in rock climbing. I am heading of to Exit 38 as many times as possible in order to learn how to climb, lead and clean. After not making it to the summit of North Ingalls it was time for me to practice being on rope and tighten my rock climbing and scrambling skills. Exit 38 is only 40 minutes from Seattle and is home a large number of bolted routes. We invited CascadeCohen the first time rock climbing. Ironically CascadeCohen did actually did better overall mastering both routes we setup than I did. On the second time it was just Matt and I in the spring. Here are the pictures...
