It was the "official last weekend of Summer," and Friday rolled around I knew I had to get out of the city. Holcomb has over 400 climbable routes and is considered a mecca for routes of moderate difficulty.
FOREVER OUTSIDE ADVENTURE JOURNAL
Standing 13,775' above sea level the Grand Teton is an iconic mountain steeped in history. With a long approach, unpredictable weather patterns, high altitude and only accessible through technical rock climbing, achieving it's summit is never guaranteed.
With over 5000' of climbing and covering five mountains over 14.000' tall, the Thunderbolt to Sill Traverse has been my greatest accomplishment in alpinism.
First time to Oregon, first time to Smith Rock State Park, first climb we ascend the iconic Monkey Face.
Sometimes the word "epic" is used as a noun instead of an adjective. On Memorial day I climbed my first route in Yosemite National park. The route was Snake Dike on the iconic monolith Half Dome. It was definitely my greatest epic.
Day two of the RRR climbing festival was the busiest. We volunteered with Access Fund to help define trails around the Kraft Boulders, lead a trad route in our climbing clinic, and partied like a "rock star" get it? Like rocks, rock climbing, boulders, ehhh just read and see!
