347/366 – Bridal Veil Falls

*Monday, January 7

Monday morning my brother and I got up and went for a quick (relatively speaking) climb up Bridal Veil Falls. It was a bit easier than the ice climb on Sunday, so a bit more fun for me. It was quite the different situation than the day before though. This time my brother was belaying from the top, and when I got up there we were able to hike up the frozen stream bed for a while. It was absolutely beautiful up there, and I find myself already missing the canyon. I also got to clean an anchor and rappel for the first time after we were done, which was exciting (though admittedly slightly nerve-wracking at first). Again, this day calls for multiple photographs, so I hope you enjoy!

I thought I would share another of me in action.

And last but not least, my favorite shot from the day after rappelling down.

  1. First, whoever took that shot of you climbing is a dang good photo shooter himself! Secondly, you spell RAPPEL like that. I am sure you have done a lot of repelling though 😉 That ice climb also didn’t repel you, because you climbed to the top and then rappelled down it. Nice work, by the way!
