Wet climbing

I got to co-lead another AMC rock climbing trip today. The forecast was for an even chance of rain. We moved the cliff to a closer cliff so if it got rained out it wouldn’t be a big deal. A bunch of folks canceled. And my co-leader came down sick and bailed. So that left myself, Tyson, Thor, and two other folks and a misty, humid day.

Well, it never actually rained on us. The rock was very slimy and in places sopping wet. So it felt a bit more like caving than rock climbing. But it did give us different sorts of challenges to work on. I didn’t do a single climb clean. But perseverance got me up all of them (that I started).
