    Leaves are falling all around
    It's time I was on my way
    Thanks to you I'm much obliged
    For such a pleasant stay
    But now it's time for me to go
    The autumn moon lights my way
    For now I smell the rain
    And with it pain
    And it's headed my way
    Ah, sometimes I grow so tired
    But I know I've got one thing I got to do



    would have been nice to nail down my little project but didnít feel strong after the three week layoff. back to training this week!

    Climbed at city of rocks this weekend and the weather was stellar. Definitely recommend taking a trip down there next weekend!

    covid restrictions are back in force but with the first day of tickets for leaving the red zone i rolled the dice. probably wonít get to climb again this year... and now the gyms look to be shutting down as well.

    spent the weekend climbing in south central utah in an area called Jungle on the Aquarius Plateau (how dramatic!). for having lived/climbed in utah for the better part of the last 14 years, i'm not sure why it took me so long to get out there. climbed a number of fantastic routes (many of which were put up by our very own boissal) in the 10-range - i found the rock excellent, the climbing varied, and the views spectacular.

    The guidebook is due pretty much any day now. Nice area which really blew up in the past 5 years, well worth a visit from people in Vegas or AZ. It does get roasty hot in the summer even at 10.5k but there's usually good shade to be had.

    How safe are the rocks? I mean, is there a high risk of the rock crumbling and increasing the risk of falling off? I don't really like this kind of extreme. Once I was seriously injured, I donít want any more. I prefer solid rocks, where you can rely only on your own strength, without tricks from nature.

    Damn, that's a lot of gear required. Great photos nevertheless

    Climbed Touchstone wall in zion on Christmas day. Only did 6 out of 8 pitches so we didn't have to rap in the dark. It was my partner's first big(ish) wall, so he was a bit slow and a little nervous, but we had a great time! Weather was beautiful and warm, and the climbing was fantastic.

    Nicely done! I have fond memories of getting worked in Zion in the winter. Crossing the Virgin river at 6AM in your underwear dodging floating ice then belaying a 3 hour aid-pitch while shivering uncontrollably is something that every climber needs to experience at least once!

    Yeah! That tricam was quite marginal in the flaring scar, and right above that cracked, flexing piton. But it all held!

    I did take a nice 20 footer at the top of the long 4th pitch (5.10 free climbing). Feeling 40+ meters of rope slowly coming tight as you whiz past multiple pieces of gear is always a good time.

    If you're not a bot the best advice I have is just start climbing. If you want to get outside and learn skills hire a guide or find a mentor (possibly at the gym).

    Powdork is correct.
