Rock Canyon Lately

 The past few weeks have been cold and wet, but there have been windows of opportunity where we were able to get out and climb. Rock Canyon is home to some amazing climbing and is only a stones throw away from home. We were able to sneak up there twice this week to do some fun multi-pitch routes on the northern side of the canyon.

The first day took us up Trilogy Buttress where Blake, Jeff, Parker and I climbed two separate routes. I let Jeff and Blake take the better more "Fun" route. Parker and I took the other way up which is exposed and thin on protection. We only did the first pitch and then rappelled off of the side while Blake and Jeff climbed on.

Cosmic Space Dust Lasers was the next climb we got to do. Yesterday was perfect for climbing. It drizzled slightly for a moment, but that was all we got while we were up on this three pitch climb. This was Neena's first time going up multiple pitches and this route couldn't have been more perfect. It was simple and fun. She did great and led the second pitch, which had one of the cooler sections of climbing. We had a good group and Parker shot some great photos.
