Utah Paddlin’, Bikin’, and Climbin’

A 4 day stretch including 2 days of rock climbing at Indian Creek and Wall Street. We did something like 13 routes in those 2 days, mostly in the upper 5.10 range and climbs I had never done before. I didn’t weight the rope once. I was pretty pleased with myself.

Spent the better part of an afternoon hiking right outside of Moab. I ran into a local at the trailhead who gave me directions where to locate some petroglyphs.

Left Yosemite on a Wednesday, and this was most of Thursday.

Got a bit lucky with a permit being available the same day I went into the backcountry office.

This post is feeling a bit like bragging, as is just about everything on here really. Not sure what to do about that. Maybe that is just the internet for you.

I am traveling by myself. I have a lot of freedom to do things right now.

One day things will be different.
