Description

Jeff and I went up to Eldorado Canyon to do some rock climbing on the West Ridge.  Jeff did a great job trad-leading Mesca-Line (5.7) and setting up and anchor.  I top-roped the route, and then we both top-roped pitch 1 of Pony Express (5.9) twice and Iron Horse (5.11) twice.  We both had a lot of hanging and help on Iron Horse.  I climbed it better my first time up and Jeff climbed it better the second time he was on it.  After this, we moved up to Positively Fourth Street (5.9) and what felt like an unnamed (5.8) to the left of Positively Fourth Street.  We top-roped Positively Fourth Street three times and the other route twice.
