Here we are, about 1/3 of the way up and setting up the equipment for the rest of the climb. Your's truely does the lead till we get to the last pitch at the top. Our friend takes that. We are placing the most used pieces where we can get to them quicker on our belts or harnesses. All the way up Grey Rock we are in awe of the great views it has to offer. In many places it just drops off. You don't think about that part and just keep going. This is one of the many mind games you overcome when rock climbing. This rock is one of my favorite places to climb.
Rearranging the slings and ropes.
Here we are on the last leg of the climb. This is Lance doing the lead. You can see where he has placed some slings, draws & cams.
Here is my husband climbing.
Here I am climbing. We are just about to the top at this point.

Success!!! Here is Lance at the very top of Grey Rock (can you tell by the smile?). It is just beautiful up here.
Here is my husband and me at the top, and yes, we are ecstatic!!!
At the bottom we are tired and very happy. It was a great day for three friends to bond and the climb left us feeling complete. While we didn't do any motorcycling, we did have a blast with another high adventure.

Be sure to read the article before this post about MotoFemina. It's about 3 ladies on a new adventure themselves, with motorcycles (lol).

Safe Journeys in Your Part of the World,

Betty :)

Thanks, it was a lot of fun and the views on the way up are very impressive. I've done this climb four other times and it amazes me every time. It's one of my favorite climbs.
