Devil’s Lake Trad

Back in May, our friend Chris was nice enough to take us on a trad climbing adventure at Devil’s Lake State Park.  Having never done any trad climbing, it was something I had been meaning to learn more about for several years but for whatever reason just hadn’t gotten around to it.  Up to this point I had mainly toproped at Devil’s Lake, but the whole toprope scenario really doesn’t do much for me.  I found the whole experience of trad climbing to be rather enjoyable and exciting even if the climbing itself was not incredibly challenging from a physical standpoint.

Now that bouldering is out of the question (for now), perhaps easy trad will be where it is at for me in the near future.  Here are a few pictures of me sewing up Queen’s Throne (5.4) and Amy somewhere near the top of the Lost Face (5.7ish).
