I'm Sheryl trying to get into lead sport climbing. I went to RRR, Zion, Stronghold, and have done several multi-pitch sport and trad routes in Phx , single pitches on Lemmon, I like the back country climbing. I have been climbing for about 3 years.
harness, helmet, ATC devise, webbing, chords, shoes, biners, personal anchor, rope, QD's.
single pitch and multi-pitch out door routes. A few times to the gym. Love to camp to climb!
trusting belay and competent trusting lead. safety first.
I see from your intro that you are "trying to get into lead climbing." I've had a goodly number of trad leads back "in the day," and was just going to use this meet-up as a way to re-familiarize myself with placement techniques, and maybe see what new gear has come online -- so I can easily let you (or whoever has priority on the waiting list) take my slot here and I'll hook up with James and get some practice following him.
Wish, I could go to Isolation Canyon with you, but I still hope you go, so you can so me the way next time.
First pitch of In lightning is really good. Second pitch very short and anticlimatic. Other ways to finish the route but all pretty hard in comparision.
