After Work Climbing

One of the best things about living in Seattle is it’s proximity to some fantastic outdoors.  We have all of the benefits of a big city (except for decent mass transit) with the wilds of the countryside just a short drive away.  In that spirit Eric and I drove out to exit 38 after work to do a little rock climbing.

It has been quite a while since I’ve done any climbing so I was, shall I say, rusty.  It was great fun anyway.  We hiked up the Mt. Washington trail to the Peannacle wall.  The views are phenomenal.  It’s worth the hike just for the views.  We saw a fantastic sunset and then hiked out in the dark.  Unfortunately I didn’t have a camera with me to capture the way that the sunset cast its beautiful hue on the rock.  I guess I’ll have to go back.
