Pitch 2 of Beginner's Delight 5.3 Trapps

Monday I guided Joe and Suzanne in the Trapps.  I have been guiding these two for a couple of days.  We decided to start the day with Beginner’s Delight 5.3.  This route is the best of its grade.  The exposure on pitch 3, belay situations and excellent rock quality make it a total classic.  After the long rappel off the Madam G’s ledge we headed down to Frog’s Head 5.6-.  Both pitches on Frog’s Head are fantastic.  Totally different from each other.  We finished the day with the three star classic City Light’s 5.8-.  It’s hard to complain about life with routes and weather like this.
