Spring Session at Balcony Jr.

Balcony Jr. was the focus of some Spring climbing action over this past weekend. Carl Orr grabbed some great photos of the weekends activities. I don't know the names of the climbers in these shots. If you know their names, feel free to post comments. Enjoy the images and click on any image to see a larger version. Thanks Carl.

 Looks like the weather was great and fun was had. Thanks again to Carl Orr for the photos.

I've never seen that many people at Balcony or Balcony Jr at one time before. I think there were 11 or 12 of us out there and 6 ropes put up. Was definitely an awesome day to go climbing. Thanks, Carl, for sending all these pictures in!

When did these climbs get names? I like them.
