Dan, Kelsey, Kurt, and I all met up with Adrianne at her place at 7 am Saturday morning, and piled up in Kurt's Jeep to drive out to Leavenworth. We were planning on meeting Steph and her friends out there around Bruce's Boulder. So while we were waiting to hook up with her, we put up some climbs across the street at Barney's Rubble. Dan led a short 5.8 crack and I put up a short 5.6. Everyone top roped those climbs and a few of us had time to top rope the 5.10 slab that shared anchors with one of the trad climbs. While we were climbing Steph and gang showed up and told us they were headed over to The Playground. So when we were done. we headed over there and did a bunch of fun easy climbs, mostly sport and a few trad. We wanted to finish the day with some good crack climbs, so we drove out to the Classic Crack area and Kurt led Classic crack while Dan put up the 5.8 line just to the left. Those were definitely the best climbs of the day -- but we were trying to hurry so everyone had a chance to TR both cracks, so we didn't manage to get any pictures. Then we headed into town for some yummy Mexican food. Then we all squished back into the Jeep for the long drive home. It was a super fun casual day for all of us and the weather couldn't have been better! :)
