Another Secret Stash

No one to play with, and weather that makes no sense whatsoever. With the forecast threatening everything from nothing to four inches of snow, the sunshine streaming through my window finally made action imperative. I tossed some things willy-nilly into the car, and drove a short distance to one of those places I’ve been wanting to go, or rather, return to; a place I hadn’t been to in a long while. As in, a decade.

I won’t bore you with the details. No climbing done: the rock was too dirty, too wet, or too difficult, and I didn’t bring my rock shoes along; the ice was too soft and steep. I expect there will be more about this area in the near future.

Real nice assortment of crack lines to climb.

What I came for, hoping it wouldn’t be beat to death.
It wasn’t, quite, but the patient was too far gone to operate.
That second tier is 30’+ tall.

These curtains are short, 25′ tall or so. But dead vertical.

Man! If only I had come here a month ago.
