Birthday climb - August 31, 2010

Since Anja had to work, I planned to go climbing with my brother Keith on my birthday. Keith got in contact with my friend Rudy and he came out to climb also. We headed up to Eldorado Canyon and hiked up to Rewritten a 5 or 6 pitch 5.7. Ken lead the alternative 5.8 start up and belayed. Since Keith planned to come back with Jill to do the route he let Ken and Rudy lead all the pitches. Rudy lead the second and third pitch.

Ken leading the fourth pitch a nice hand crack traverse to a vertical crack.

Rudy led the fifth pitch up the variation arete which was excellent.

Ken and Rudy at the base, it wasn't really this dark yet. We exited by daylight, just not needing headlamps.
