G$ here checking in from the North Cascades Scenic Highway. Imma keep this short so I can get back to some stellar sunset views.
We met in Seattle this morning and conducted a super quick gear check – one of the advantages of having everything dialed. From there we drove north to Mt. Erie, also the place I went outdoor rock climbing for the first time 8 years ago. The day was a bit of review and building more advanced skills off of the basics. We talked:
- Climbing Gear
- Knots & Hitches
- Single Pitch Top-roping
- Multi-pitch Climbing
We also got ~5 pitches each in!
Now, we’re headed to the heart of the Cascades, Marblemount to car camp tonight. Everything we reviewed and learned today will help us as we head into one of the sickest spots in WA – Boston Basin. We’ll be up there for 4 days, so I’ll update when we get back!
