Aid Climbing The Glass Menagerie

Sleeping on the wall at The Glass Menagerie, Looking Glass, North Carolina, USA.

This was a fantastic climb but we had a late start due to getting lost and end up bivy'ing lower than we planned. First aid climb and first time sleeping on the wall.

Most of the aid climbing has been edited out, but if you would like to see a full sequence that a novice like me uses, go to 7:15.

Minimalist Aid Climbing

A set of aid ladders, 2 fifi hooks and a handful of draws.

No Climbing Shoes.

An aid route was bolted years ago at our local crag for the purposes of running a clinic through a regional gym. After a few clinics, the route was more or less abandoned on the wall. While we may not have intended to do any aiding that day, the minimal gear we had demanded an attempt. Time to put those practice wall sessions to the test, rotten bolts or not.

@gunkclimber is certainly better at it then I am.
