Climbing all over the place

While we were in Arkansas we figured we might as well take advantage of the good weather and do some climbing we went back to Jamestown crag, and rappelled down to give Mary some more practice.

All the way down there?


Graceful as a pig in a blanket

Return of crouching Mary

Sun was setting, and we were climbing away

We ended up staying a little late, it was strange to climb at night, and even stranger to belay from the top.

The next day we came back and brought Baxter with us, we also met two very friendly walking sticks

Then we decided that we should go climb in southern Illinois at Jackson Falls, Mary and Baxter came along for some of it.

Mary showing her confidence and mad skills, doing her first lead climb!

No big deal for Mary

Another night climb, this time with lights- the weather was perfect, and it was so much fun.

Alright enough play time, it was time to start another project...
