Obadiah and I opted out of the impending Polagye whiteout trip and chose to hit up Leavenworth last weekend. Saturday morning we rolled up to Castle Rock under gloomy skies and threw down Saber in front of a quad of mounties. Obadiah led the 5.8 variation of the first pitch and I took the 2nd lead, stopping at some anchors short of the summit, and Obi finished up the scramble off.
We were feeling good so we decided to head up Canary. I led the stern but fair first pitch and neither of us were too gung ho on the send pitch so we finished it on Saber again. When Obadiah reached the belay he informed me that DP and JStern were in the hood.

We walked off, had a sloppy reunion with those guys and gave DP a peanut gallery for his Canary lead. Then we made our way over to Midway. The first pitch failed to sway my opinion of chimneys and Obadiah led the second pitch. Back at the car we had a safety soda with DaveO and Ryan while we waited for the old farts to do finger surgery and rappel.

Current UWCCers AJ and Reed (? sorry fellas, things were sorta hazy) needed an electronic boost for their performance climbing transport and all 8 of us ended up deciding to storm 8mile campground. We had one hell of a good beer port burrito ax-in-the-woods tastleless jokes sleep in the dirt good time.

Sunday morning Dave and Ryan headed off for breakfast and supposedly 11 pitched of climbing. AJ and Reed drove off into the sunrise. Obadiah and I bombed up classic crack and then headed for Groundhog's Day (3p, 5.7). I thought it was more fun than Midway or Saber. It had some good alpinesque, lichen covered, runout climbing. It was more interesting than I expected.

Next we went to Retarded Rock and because we were retarded we got lost. About a sweaty hour later, we ran into the Stern/Perrakis expedition in the midst of a demonstration on how to make thorough and dramatic rappels. They informed us that we were retarded and still were at the wrong place. They pointed us away from their hardcore slab climbs and in the right direction. Obi led Seven Seas which finished in a velcro, albeit painful, hand crack and we called it a day.

A stop at the Alpen Drive in wrapped up one durned fun weekend. Thanks all.

Indeed. Great climbing, and great company.
