John Henderson - my climbing intstructor for my first day of rock climbing. We ended up doing over a dozen routes for the weekend. I got to lead on three or four.

This is a 5.10a with a small roof (and only my second day of climbing).

This 5.10a had a small roof on the top of about 2 feet or so just to make things more interesting.

This one had a pretty big gap (seemed like 20 feet) between the top bolts and the next one down.

It's not obvious from this camera angle, but this was a 5.10b. This was our most difficult and last climb for the weekend.

We didn't do this one (in the middle) but I think it was called the Shark's Fin.
