|Benno||Three times... |
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 1993
|I've been to Northern America ('93 '95 and '97) and three times I visited Grand Junction (Colorado) where I stayed in the nice Melrose Hostel and took part in the organized day trip to Arches. Actually in 93 I took the trip twice. It is just such a wonderful place.|

|loved arches from the first moment i laid eyes upon it. it's a great place to climb towers though i've only just started with climbs of bullwinkle and off-balance towers. and of course, everyone should experience elephant butte once in their lifetime.|
4/16/11- climbed tonka tower, west face(5.8 A0) and owl rock's olvesky route(5.8) on a beautiful, sunny day.
10/15/11- climbed bubo tower's north face(5.7 R) in the twilight before rappelling into the night.
11/19/11- devil's golf ball(5.9 C1), my first aid tower. a strenuous, free jugging experience. good stuff! dark angel, dark angel....
2/18/12- pickle(5.9 C1), my first sustained aid lead. took awhile, but i felt really comfortable working my way up the bolts. the free moves at the top were funky until reaching the big hueco.
3/24/12- ham rock(5.8+), possible true first ascent w/derek. what a rope-eater of a crack on the rappel, a strenuous pull to say the least!
10/13/12- three penguins(5.10a, C1), a year long project A.J. and i finally put to rest! topping out was a rush of relief after being stumped by this monster twice before. now to bigger, tougher towers....
the question lingers, how cool would a free rappel from the double arch be?

|A great place for desert hiking. Really enjoyed the Fiery Furnace, the walks out to the Dark Angel and the Klondike Bluffs.|

|Like a wax museum on fire, wonderous looking up at the Tower of Babel.|
