Day 5 - more sport climbs. We finished the day with this easy two-pitch route at Sandstone Quarry that was half light coloured rock and half red rock. And it had about a 10 minute approach walk from the parking lot. Ideal!
Day 6 - Olive Oil. A 3-star, 5-pitch trad route in Juniper Canyon.
|This was my view from the top of pitch 3 as Andrew led around the corner and up pitch 4. |
Not quite so cranky any more.
|I led pitch 5, the very long (200 ft) but very fun crack/chimney pitch to the top |
(the "obvious" crack just right of centre and left of the highest point in the photo).
Not cranky at all after that! :-)
|On the last little uphill back to the car. Great sky pattern and colours.|
Day 7 - more sport climbs and despite the fact that we were getting tired and sore from climbing, we did our hardest routes of the week today!
|A sad and lonely looking palm tree.|
