Climbed Lover’s Leap this morning with Chad and Sagar–a classic 5.7 multipitch trad climb near Red Rocks. Led the second pitch (180′, 5.7), and found I rather enjoyed it–even almost wished it was a touch more challenging. I’m finally to a point where I trust the systems and trust the gear, and increasingly do not want to fall out of a desire to climb the route cleanly, and less out of a fear of falling.
Took my camera and snagged a few pictures along the way, including the one of Chad rappelling, below. Cranked up the shadows a bit, and tacked on 1000 px of black on the left-hand side, to create a perfect desktop background image for a large display. Enjoy!
