Results from second training session at indoor climbing gym

Today I went back to Hangdog Climbing Gym in Lower Hutt, New Zealand. I worked with Brook on doing a “Prussick” setup to ascend a fixed rope. We spend a long time figuring out using the gear in the best way. After much trial and error, I managed to get myself up the rope about 4 meters and got the following shot.

Brook from Hangdog climbs up to my position from "prussiking" up the rope.

Unknown climber starts his climb at the base of the wall next to where my rope was set.

Unknown climber reaches the sweet spot for photographer showing the angle of view, some of the feet visible, and the face.

Unknown climber reaches the "crux" or hardest part of the climb and shows determination on his face to pass it.
