5 out of 5 stars The third time is a charm!

Dehydration issues had me bail on this twice. After a snack and LOTS of water, I cruised right up! I had a blast, felt very accomplished, and made my physical therapist earn his co-pay the next day! Boo-yeah!

4 out of 5 stars Success on Toprope After a failed attempt

First try burned out my arms when I got turned around in the crux. after a snack and a clear plan did it straight through.
