Ben and Blake were fun to be out with this morning.
Parker joined me last Saturday for a little investigatory jaunt.

After we had our crack climbing fix taken care of we headed over to Black and Tan. This area has some amazing limestone features. The formations are very unique and unlike any other limestone area I have climbed.
Curtis started to work on the pictured 5.12c bellow and was able to pull through some massively hard moves. I am pretty sure we all left this trip with unfinished business. It gave me a lot more drive to get in shape for the summer.

This past weekend I was supposed to be up in the Pacific North West snowboarding... but the trip ended up falling apart last second. I was pretty bummed but luckily Tanner was still wanting to make something happen so we went on a climbing trip to St. George.
Tanner picked me up in his Dad's natural gas car and then Austin, Nicole, and Curtis all piled in and we were on our way. I ended up falling asleep for most of the ride, but I did catch the tail end of an interesting conversation that I will leave in the CNG Civic.
We woke up and headed up Snow Canyon to climb Atomic Indian. This was my first crack climb and I think I can see myself getting addicted.
Taping up. The gloves are an art form that we all are in the process of perfecting.
Curtis crushing it.
Curtis is awesome.
I will be back to lead this one. I am not quite there yet.
Tanner and Curtis decided to go all in on this crack and not use the wall bumping it up a few letter grades.
