Point Dume partie deux

On Saturday, August 15th, we went back to Point Dume for more.

We lead-climbed our first route, and sent (climbed successfully) our first 5.10. Ow!

We got there around 9 and took off around 6. Met some cool folks, and had a lot of fun.

Here's a Video of Thomas being lowered after completing Center Route.

The wildlife gets a little to close for Patrick's comfort:

I look so much braver on the ground than when I actually get on the rock. Then the puling and whining start...big time:

The route on the right (green rope) is the 5.10 I was able to climb. Patrick didn't get a chance, 'cause the person whose rope we were on had to leave, and we didn't feel like setting up an anchor of our own, but it'll be there next time:

Surely this is the dorkiest picture of me there is:
