Various Routes  Sucess!

Lots of great sandstone fun, routes were easy to find and were also well marked with engraved coins to mark grade. All in all a great time and will be back the first chance I get.

Spring Break  Sucess!

Week-long trip to the Red, phenomenal climbing. However, after 6 days of intense, all-day climbing, my pads are bloody pulp!

2002 to 2008  Sucess!

8 hrs from Detroit, practically lived there on weekends in the summers to keep from going crazy in the city.

Unappreciated Arches  Sucess!

A great place to hike, unexpectedly wild in some places (Whittleton Creek and Arch), unexpectedly airy in others (Sky Arch, Chimney Tops).

Favourite place so far  Sucess!

My wife and I climbed there for a week in 2006. It was awesome. This is my favouite climbing area I've ever been to. The climbing was fantasic, and the people even better.

Where the heart is.  Sucess!

I started climbing here in 1987. I live nearby, and call it home. Now considered an old school local. I will always come back one more time than I leave.

My Old KY Home  Sucess!

This is where I cut my teeth before moving west. I hiked every trail and bushwhacked every cliff I could find. I probably did too many things without a rope, but I survived. If you live within 3-4 hours, get here on your next day off. You won't regret it.

Great climbing area. Love camping and eating at Miguels. Make at least one trip a year there. Most recently checked out the Muir Valley area...very nice climbing. Can't wait to get back there.

Route Climbed: Bedtime for Bonzo, Eureka, Roadside Attraction, 5-finger Discount, others Date Climbed: May, 2003  Sucess!

Does the Red really count as a summit? Nice place and all, but not really a mountain. Climbed there three different times on various moderate trad and sport routes. Save an Ale 8 for me...
