As usual, a great page on a cool place. Great route text and pictures illustrating the routes.
Here it is ... the page of one of my favorite climbing areas at the US. Thanks for posting it !
Thanks for the good vote!
It's definitely a fun area - ideal for spring and late fall when the mountains are largely "out of comission" due to weather.
Very nice page. Good stuff on Wheat Thin
Thanks for the positive vote!
So have you climbed there (City)?
um... like moses I stood on the Tetons and stared into Idaho but did not venture there. But the City of Rocks is in the mags.
Nice page with good routes and photos Radek. I'll have to check it out someday, not that far from me.
Thanks for the good vote Martin.
You definitely should give it a shot (a trip to the City) - the place is great in the spring (just check the forecast) and is good until pretty much the first snow fall in the late fall (saw climb reports from as late as Thanksgiving where they had sunny & dry weather). This is probably our 2nd favorite cragging area (after Red Rocks)!
Thanks for the good vote!
Good stuff. Thanks.
Thank you for the good vote. It's a great fun climbing area with this middle-of-nowhere feel to it.
Good page, nice work. Cheers William
A typically fine page. Nice report of an area I didn't know about.
Thanks Radek for directing me to this page. The similarities to Monte Limbara are really astonishing. I guess, that this is the typicalerosion form for granite -- like peeling off the rock in sheets - which gives these domes their typical shape. But there are others - I don't know if you have seen - which carve out the granite from the inside:
Look at the whole weirdness here
This is an incredible place. Bob B. and I had done an overnighter on Cache Peak on
6-25/26 to get Cache early in the morning in order to dodge thunderstorms in the area. Afterwards, we came down and drove all through the City of Rocks and were in "wow" heaven. So many neat formations and the place (weekend) was packed with people with license plates from everywhere.
Cache Peak is the highpoint of Cassia county. Bob and I went over to Power county and picked off Deep Creek Peak later in the day. We had a great view back to Cache.
Thank you for the good vote Dean.
Please submit more City of Rocks photos if you got 'em - the ones you posted so far are excellent!
Also, I'm hoping that you're planning on adding Cache Peak page (as well as the other one you mention).
Thanks Radek. I have a few more to post of this fascinating area and will do Cache Peak when I get some time free. When you go back down to City of Rocks, let me know. I'd love to visit that area again myself.
Look forward to checking out Cache Peak page. We did the neighboring Independence Peak about 2 yrs. ago and it was quite beautiful - alpine lakes, great views from the summit! Hard to believe how many "hidden" treasures Idaho has - it's a gorgeous state!
Will let you know Dean when we're heading out there - my guess would be sometime in early October for a quick weekend trip. Would be great to meet up there.
Thank you for the good vote.
