Easy Slab, but we shuttled 6 people up 2 pitches and a little more. I went up in the middle or the group to handle the hanging belay station where we had people on the 2nd pitch while I belayed others up the 1st. Our 60m ropes was a little short to run two people up (one in the middle and one at the end) so the last 15ft or so we had two people simultaneous climbing on one rope. We reached the top of Enchanted Rock at sunset. It was fun and beautiful, the perfect end to a day or climbing..
