First multi-pitch experience at Echo Cliffs.
Half-day with Andre and Patrick enjoying a mix of top rope, lead on multipitch route. Got some good rappel and safety instructions on some challenging routes.
Andre's car keys fell out of his pocket into the brush while on the rock. We never found them though Patrick almost got bit by a snake while searching! Patrick drove us back to LB where they helped me climb through my window to get my car keys. I drove us back to his car and almost ran out of gas! Secured some expensive Malibu gas before making the long drive back. A full day of driving!
