While most of the UW climbers went to Vantage, Me, Aaron Z. and Alex left the U district at 6:30 am for Levenworth!! the weather was snowy and cloudy all the way over Stevens pass. We arrived at L worth around 9:15 am to discover partly cloudy skies and no crowds of climbing bums. After hiking 30 mins we found ourselves a nice 5.9 crack near Purina Crags. Alex completed his first ever 5.9 rock climb outside of the gym, and we all had fun on this sweet crack.
After messing around on the rocks above purina crags, we showed Alex how to rappell and belay a leader. We all had fun, not to mention there were hardly any climbers in sight, just the way I like it. during the day it began to snow off and on very lightly, yet the sun was beating down on us at the same time.
We found a few more easy pitches above bolt rock and spent a considerable amount of time coaxing Alex off a rappell! not bad for his first time =). All and all it was a great trip and we all had fun. we finally left the crags around 4, and headed to macdonaldes to eat 99Cent Double Cheesburgers. We needed the protein!!! All and all it was a great trip!
