Danielle: We're on the second pitch here. I thought I'd be a lit bit more freaked out, because I have a thing with hikes. I was fine, because the climb we were on was a slab (less than vertical), so you don't feel like your high up. I was quite comfortable and the ledges where the belay stations were set up were quite comfortable.

You can see part of the anchor in this picture. I'm getting ready to climb, and Robert is above, belaying from the top. I always climbed second, and would tie another rope to me and trail it up the wall. That would be the rope Tad would be following up on. We used to ropes to do this. I'm unclipping myself from the anchor, while Robert has me on belay.
