Flash Floods at Crestone Peak

It was an awesome scramble, probably one of my favorites and before we knew it we were topping out on Crestone Peak, wind rushing over the lichen spotted rocks near the summit. The vertigo was intense. It was only 8 am.

Kelty Lakota 65 Backpack Review

Kelty Lakota 65 Backpack Review

I’ve been using the Lakota 65 to haul my climbing gear and have caught myself marveling at how I ever managed without features like easy side access and the built-in rain cover.

Simon Carter’s photography is flawlessly presented and punctuated with short text, just enough to inform and not distract from the beauty that he captures with his camera. He begins in the Blue Mountains of Australia where the introduction of over 2000 routes is enough to whet the climber’s appetite.

The Gold Bar Boulders Approach

The Gold Bar Boulders Approach

My new goal was to reach the boulders before dark and find a nice granite perch to watch the sunset. What a gorgeous area! The view of Mount Index was phenomenal and just kept getting better as I gained elevation. The air was crisp but the sun and a steady pace had me sweating and breathing hard.
