I rolled out of bed at 6:30 a.m. to meet up with Chase. As I drove in the darkness I realized the days of early morning climbing might be over. My car's thermometer read 38 degrees. A little too cold for our liking. We bagged climbing for the morning and decided to meet at noon to try again.
We made the long approach to Galaxy Wall in Rock Canyon. I was impressed with the quality of the rock and the amount of routes in the area. In the past I have discounted Rock Canyon. In the summer months it is always warmer and the routes always seem a little dirty. I now realize I haven't been giving the canyon a fair shot. It is a great spot with some great climbing. I think I will have to explore it more in the future.
