City of Rocks

It doesn't get much better than a weekend away with good climbing, good people, and good food. We piled into the car with Jann, Steve, and a whole lot of climbing gear to meet up with Greg and Kate in the City of Rocks. So far The City has yielded some of the most spectacular sunsets I have ever seen and this trip did not disappoint.

We spent a cool night under the stars which eventually changed to a light rain. Eventually we pulled ourselves from our beds and headed out climbing. We hit a few of the City classics, but with the warming of the day climbing soon became difficult. Sweaty hands on rock don't mix very well. Greg pulled off some amazing routes and I had a good time hanging out behind the lens.

Eventually the heat of the day got the better of us. We escaped to Almo for some pizza, air conditioning, and cold beverages. Afterwards we tried to nap, hiding out under a makeshift shelter, through the hottest part of the day. The evening brought more climbing and ended under a sky full of stars. The City of Rocks is always a good trip. Hopefully I can get up there a few more times this year.
