First Outdoor Lead

I have been wanting to outdoor lead climb now for awhile and it hasn't fit into my work schedule to join people I know. On an impulse I answered a post for someone looking to climb in Red Wing today. Chase turned out to be an excellent partner for my first lead climbing. He had a great attitude and my first lead went very well. I did my first ever outdoor lead on Jenna's Chimney. I then top roped Cinq Jour D"Affille, and I gave Jump Start a try...I didn't get too far on that one and then lead on Sunburst. By then I was pretty tired and didn't make that all the way to the top. Chase's goal for the day was to do Jump Start and he styled it! Outdoor climbing is very different from the gym. I really liked it! Thanks Chase!
