Bastille Crack w/Mark Oveson


Mark and I met at 6:00 a.m. and headed into Eldo to do the Bastille Crack. It had been ten years since Mark had climbed this route (I climb it probably five times every year) and really wanted to see it again. I led everything and we pitched it out as five pitches. Mark is trying to get himself back into solid 5.8 climbing shape, so I took the 5.8 right finish at the top. This proved to be a bit challenging for Mark and I believe there was some rope weighting involved, but it's a tricky, steep finish.

We had a great morning, as usual and were driving out of the park a bit after 8 a.m.
