Description

Jeff and I went to Eldorado Canyon for the morning.  We climbed the Gambit route on Shirttail Peak.  I led the first (5.5), third (5.7), and forth (5.6) pitches while Jeff took the crux second pitch (5.8).  After this we hiked down towards the canyon where Jeff led Positively Forth Street (5.9) and I led Mesca-Line (5.7).  After climbing, we ran in to Dan Cillo and Austin Lorehn at the Southern Sun Brewery in Boulder, Colorado.
