Wedding on the Rocks – Loose Ends

Continuing on with some much needed updates from a Jam Packed fall 2014.  Lets keep on flaking out this rope to find the tie-in point.

One Hand JamClimber Friends Get Married – September 27th

On Labor Day 2013, I was honored to assist my climbing partner (and friend) in proposing to his girlfriend.  It was an amazing day out at our local sport crag, where my friend pre-placed the engagement ring on a carabiner at the top of a route named “One Hand Jam”.

Check out the original post here.

So, by now, over a year has gone by.  And life has advanced quite well.  On a climbing note: the route that he was on (the one on the left) during his proposal was previously unnamed in the guidebook.  Clearly, we were not the first ascentionists of this route, but I was able to communicate with the local legend that established  “One Hand Jam”.  In talking with him and the guidebook author, it sounds like that unnamed route has a solid chance of now carrying the name “Relationship on the Rocks”, honoring their proposal.

Route Name

A few months later, I was again honored by receiving a request to be a groomsman in the wedding.  Of course, I accepted.  The date was set and time marched on.  The big day arrived on September 27th, 2014.  I will finish as I started in the original post, by letting the pictures tell the story.
