The season has started!

I got out climbing in Gatineau yesterday with Remi, Jeff, Pete, Andrew and Iris. We enjoyed all day sun on the North Wall while climbing easy trad. I climbed my first route, a 5.4 crack, on gear.


Get on the rock




The North Wall is near Baby Pneu which was soaked except for a slightly damp two bolt wonder called Slip Stream (5.11a). After 5 minutes of work on top rope it feels totally do able and I plan to send it on lead once it dries.

Although not at a 100% my finger feels strong and ready for the season.
