With rain the night before and a small window of time before Cindy and Ariel headed down south, I wondered if we would be able to find dry rock.  We decided to hike the Bryce Path to the top of Cathedral and see if the rock would dry.

When we arrived at the top,  the mist began to rise.  Cindy and Ariel were excited to head over the Whitehorse and to continue their adventure.

By the time we reached Whitehorse Ledge, the sun began to show its face.  The lower section of the cliff was damp, but the upper part of Sea of Holes looked good.  Though getting off the ground was a little more challenging than usual, Cindy and Ariel moved up the rock smoothly and comfortably, enjoying the views of the valley.  We climbed the first couple of pitches in perfect weather before rappelling down.

Ariel finds a comfy rest.

Thanks for your enthusiasm and a great day on the rock!
