Finally another trip to HCR! Left early Friday morning and headed down to drizzly a sky. It was sprinkling on and off but we managed to get in a few routes before the rain hit. Thankfully we were watching the radar and made it back to the cabin before the downpour hit!

Saturday we headed into town for breakfast and then hit the crag for a great day of climbing with beautiful weather. With Jeff and Andy training for 24HHH
I worked on climbing moderates with John and Drew. The highlight of my day was climbing my first Trad Route (Flashbacks). This was the route I had seconded last trip so I knew it was an easy route. I had good gear placement and really enjoyed myself! Throughout the day Drew learned to clean and even lead a few routes! John continued to push himself as well. After dinner we headed back up and climbed a couple routes at night. I ended up cleaning Green Goblin in the dark, which was a bit freaky but fun at the same time.
