Pictures from a few of my last days in Moab. We spent a couple of nights camping and a couple days climbing in the La Sal Mountains. I had been staring at them for weeks and it was grand to see an extremely different side to Moab. Lots of green and the rock was Dakota Sandstone with colors and textures all its own. A magical place to visit in the spring.

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.

Moonlight Buttress

Apr 22nd 2014 — Climbing,National Parks,Utah,Walls,Zion — 12:24 pm

Cole and I climbed Moonlight Buttress. This involved a day to climb the first several pitches, a rest day, and then we did the route in a day. I don’t have pictures from the ascent day because my camera broke on this trip (again).

A chap by the name of Alex Honnold got famous by climbing this route without a rope in a little over two hours on April 1, 2008.
