This was a climb that had been planned for weeks, and the closer the day came, the more excited I got. Sometimes when you wait so long for something, and are excited about it so much before hand, the real thing can be less than what you expected. This was not the case with Against The Grain. This was my first multipitch climb, and it was more fun that I can describe. It was challenging, yet within my doing. It pushed me in spots, and rewarded me in others. I would recoomend this climb to any lead climber in the Inland Northwest. We accended it in one try, and it took us about 4 hours. Realistically, if we had been a little more efficent, we could have done it in 3 hours. Camping is pletiful around the area, but nelly and I decided to camp on the side of the road in a tent. It was great! We will definitly be back very soon, and look forward to doing the other climbs around the area.
