Cheers

It only gets more fun from here on out. Getting deeper in the zone and the added adrenaline of knowing you aren't on toprope.. not to mention the excitement of hearing all that metal clanging on your harness. 8^)

Good job on lead! I don't know the area, but I'm assuming that it was a sport lead.

Wow, Austin is blowin' up with up and coming climbers (myself included). I just led my first two climbs on the greenbelt, Meet the Flinstones and Schoolboys Indirect (both 5.9) last week and then top roped my first 5.11a, Through the Looking Glass two days ago! Hope to see you guys out there, the Greekbelt rocks (pun intended).
