Beginning on Friday with a 6pm climb at Vertical World and ending with belaying a lead fall at the Bellingham Crags, this weekend was just pure craziness. Climbing at Vertical World was a bit different than Stone Gardens in that they use the GriGri on a bolted anchor tied into the floor and it takes awhile to get used to the lack of needing to tie into your own harness and device. Overall, the routes were great although not very similar in degree of difficulty (Stone Gardens is more difficult). I did enjoy the experience of trying out a new gym though! After climbing we went with a group of 8 to a delicious dinner at a local Ballard restaurant, Root Table, followed by drinks at Bastille and skeeball at King's Hardware. LOVE skeeball.
