Chasing Shade

I spent a few days at the City of Rocks, Idaho with Heather and a few friends. We climbed a lot of fun crack routes and i taught my friend Jennilyn the art of jamming. The highlight of the trip was Jennilyn's first gear lead on one of my favorite City routes, Heartbreaker 5.10d. She lead the route in fine style. Given the fact that Jennilyn's hardest sport redpoint is 5.11a and only a handful of sport lead climbs on routes 5.10 and under, her one hang ascent of Heartbreaker was motivating to say the least!
