After climbing Avocado Gully earlier in the morning, Brian, Nick, and I decided to drive further south and check out Marble Falls.  This is the waterfall on the Coors Banquet can of beer.  Nick led the pitch and rappelled, I led the pitch and rappelled, and Brian led the pitch and rappelled.  The route was very fun with good sticks and kicks all the way up the falls.  Of course the top-out is always thin and a bit scary.  We returned to Glenwood Springs, Colorado, for a late lunch with our wives and then drove back to the Front Range.
