Dude On Rock...

Congratulations to our latest Rock Climbing Instructors!

With epic rains threatening a washout for Sunday, our intrepid crew packed
in a dawn to dusk Saturday at Pilot Mountain, building lots of anchors and exploring
routes.  Everyone got in deep with hands-on practice building rappelling and
climbing anchors and rope systems!  Lots of climbing site exploration and on-the-crag
practice earned a hearty meal at Little Italy in King.  Nothing says Apres Climb
like a Calzone and some Lemon Cake!

We even had some fun on the rock!!  Check out Josh on Papa Bear!

Thank you all for your excellent dedication, endurance, and eagerness to learn:
    Tyler Barker, Rachael Barker, Josh Souter, Mattney Beck & Jim Saunders

And special thanks to our great Director Staff:
    Deborah Hll, Tony Cowan, & Scott Sweetland

A fun day of learning and we look forward to working with you and your
units for a great day of climbing!!    -Scott
