Newbie Climb Day

November 5th was sunny with a slight chill in the air. River City Grotto used to do regular climb practices when Dave Obi was here. However, now we don’t get a chance to do them very often. The three very thrilled new cavers really wanted to learn Single Rope Technique (SRT). So, we drove south to Jerry’s Farm, rigged the tower, and had a class.

Jerry’s yard ornament was looking a bit intimidating on arrival.
After taking a few rappels, everyone tried climbing. Coming down is a lot easier than going up.
