This past weekend we finally got a real chance to break in our new rope. It was fun to hike up to the crag with a rope and actually be useful climbing friends. Until now we've borrowed most people's gear and waited for all the routes to be set up for us. With our own rope, and our friend's patience in teaching us to lead climb we feel like a lot less of a drag. Neither of us is very good at feeling un-useful.

but look how pretty the rope is, it has some orange in it!
