Black Dagger  Sucess!

With Patrick. Not quite what I was expecting. Not as good as Armatron in my opinion. Two neat pitches though, #2 and #3. Climbed Myster Z to get to Brownstone Wall this time, that is a pleasant way to ascend to this level vs hiking past Crimson. Did not have to lie back or anything on the 3rd pitch. Seems 5.7 to me. I understand the two run outs might be a bit much for new climbers. Great rock though. Pitch 2 had much more exposure of course and the rock not as sound, but fun and exciting to do. Do not have to rap on this descent, can squeeze down everywhere. I did take a #5 which makes sense for a placement at the beginning of the first run out on the 3rd pitch. Cheers.

Sweet  Sucess!

Awesome day out on the rock. No other parties, great views. Approach and descent were a little heavy, but well worth it.

Crimson Chrysalis too crowded - did this instead  Sucess!

This was my first multi-pitch roped climb with a more experienced climbing partner (Robert Tanner) and it was a great experience. We descended the Gunsight down to Juniper Canyon in the dark - a not as great experience.
