Wavelength – Multi-pitch Rock Climbing

Image
Wavelength (5.8) 1,080 feet, 10 pitches Whitehorse Ledge North Conway, NH
May 2nd brought a fabulous day for a first multi-pitch rock climb of the season!
Counting the ‘walk-up’ to the Launch Pad, Sean, Tom and I did 10 pitches today of The Slabs, Center of Whitehorse Ledge. We had blue skies the entire day, climbed the 5.8 pitch listening to Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ outdoor convention speech and met a “totally blind” climber on his very first multi-pitch climb.
Our climbing plan; start on the Standard Route’s direct route (Quartz pocket) and if it was dry, onto Wavelength, linking up with the Sliding Board and finishing up on the Standard Route. Sean would lead and Tom and I would second several of the pitches together. 
Enjoy photos taken of our climb!
