It was a pleasure to climb with Mike and Luke today at Cathedral and Whitehorse Cliffs. Both these guys are experienced climbers which made our day flow very fluidly. We started at Whitehorse to regain our footwork (precise movements) then we ventured over to Cathedral to play on two crack lines. By days end I felt we found the Beat as we ended up climbing 10+ pitches and took the final route to the top.


Early morning at a wet Whitehorse. I spied a dry line that went directly up to the bolts on the third pitch of Sliding Board.


Luke climbing fast and light.

Our highpoint on Whitehorse. We descended from here – three rappels landed us on the ground.


The country club scene on the approach.


Time for some steep climbing – here is Luke on pitch one of Fun House.


Mike on the cracks and corners of Fun House.


The climbing is varied and fun – Fun House to Black Lung is a great link up to the top.


Luke flying high over the Mt Washington Valley.


Along with the climbing a few new techniques were getting attention. Mike is working on the butterfly coil.

Thanks to Mike and Luke for this day – its was a privilege to climb with both of you. I look forward to seeing you gain soon.
