After visiting the place many times over roughly a year and a half and climbing there for nearly as long, the one thing that was missing from my Bernal experience was actually climbing up the whole damn thing. Well check that off my list in a most pleasant way. We picked one of the classic and relaxed multi-pitch routes up. It was 6 delightful pitches on a beautiful, but very hot December day. The only unfortunate part is that I can’t call it an original Dawn Patrol/Local Crag Sunday entry because Sarah and I never climbed it together, as we should have before she left. Zero complaints about my current climbing partner. I love getting to laugh at him taking a call at the anchor for pitch 4.
What a great day. So satisfying to finally say that I have climbed Bernal.
