Sketching bouldering

It's been 3 years since we were last at the Seattle Bouldering Project.  Most of those sketching today hadn't been there before.  I had been on that first outing and today discovered they'd added a cafe to the layout.

Staff gave us a safety briefing prior to letting us loose.  He said, "most of bouldering is falling" as he warned us to stay well away from the walls!

As I did last time, I headed for the children's wall.  It has more handholds and crawl spaces.  Also much more noise.  I'd forgotten that as well as my earplugs!  The kids were a little slower on the wall than adults upstairs.  I just waited for another child to make the climb to add to each sketch of a climber. 



Next I joined the line of sketchers on the second floor balcony to sketch the climbers from above.
