This House of Sky

Janet came to pick us up and drove to the Ghost area where we decided to climb This House of Sky.

I just wasn't too sure about this, 12 pitches, 2 creek crossings and 1500' of elevation gain.

As it turned out I was up to it and as usual we had a fabulous day. Sunny skies, with barely a breath of wind and spending the day in the canyon was great. One team ahead of us turned around when one of their team broke through the ice getting on foot wet. Unlucky for him, but he clearly marked for us the area to avoid.
Domhnall and Janet free climbed and they set up a rope to belay me up for most of the pitches. At the end we continued to climb two other pitches.

Domhnall free climbed the first, setting up a belay for Janet and I, then Janet climbed the last pitch.

The three of us after a full day of climbing. Grins all around must mean that we all had a great time.
