Day 3 of the long weekend

Dan started the day with an early-morning bike ride. Matt came up from Colo. Springs around 9am for a day of climbing. We tried going to the Boulderado (again) but ended up at Coney Island instead. Found a sport route that looked like it would go and each had a few turns climbing it. Later we found out the route was called Runaway. A website graded it 5.8 but we only did the lower part which was probably 5.7. It didn't look like there'd be any other routes for us on this rock, so we set out to find the real Boulderado. It's a popular crag but there was one route open for us, and it was a good one (Idle Hands, 5.6). We each got a few runs up it before the clouds turned sour. It may not have rained but the sky sure didn't look good! Overall a good day of climbing. (More pics)

There was a neat caterpillar at Coney Island. In the spring it will become a silkworm moth.
