Rifle Part 2

Our first week at Rifle has gone well, although the climbing is proving to be more physical and challenging than I remembered! Here is a video we took yesterday of Elise "swinging" at the Project Wall. When I lower off my climb, the rope dangles quite a distance from the wall - perfect for a big "king swing", as Elise calls it. And don't worry - the rope is well-secured to the top of the cliff, Elise has a UIAA approved climbing harness and I'm belaying her with a proper device. It's all safe, despite how it looks!
