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.
More desert rain, camping, and some climbing at Indian Creek and Maverick Buttress up Long Canyon, outside of Moab.
I met up with my man Busy S. in Moab and we road bikes out Potlatch road and drove down to the creek that evening. The next day we road to the Needles of Canyonlands surrounded by warmth and sunshine. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures.
Busy left to go back to Denver and for the next 3 days we climbed at Cat Wall, Donnelley Canyon, and 1st Meat Wall.
By your 4th day of climbing you start to feel a little worked. We decided to brave the crowds and the local bros and hit up the popular Battle of the Bulge wall. I hung all over some 5.10 handcrack, but was happy to get up it at all. It was my first lead where you had to use the crack for everything, no face holds. We ended the day by trashing around on another offwidth, Big Baby.
The day where we woke up to snow we went on an expedition to look at Critic’s Choice wall. A wall that includes the hardest off-width climb in Indian Creek, Belly Full of Bad Berries. On Wed we decided to climb there. We saw a total of 2 people all day, a big contrast to the action-packed scene at Way Rambo.
For Spring Break myself and a few friends went rock climbing in Indian Creek, Utah, a little over an hour south of Moab. We spent a full week surrounded be beautiful desert with world-class crack climbing thanks to the unique geology of the area.
These are all pictures of Tuesday. Saturday we climbed at Pistol Whipped wall but I didn’t bring my camera. Monday we woke up to 2 inches of snow on the ground outside our tents and had an unexpected early rest day.
