New Content for Autumn 2016

sublime-buttress-michal-hand-jamsI recently realized that we haven’t written a post since June. Hopefully our readers can forgive us: we have been out climbing every weekend and every available moment, leaving little time for writing between grad school and our passion. We have really pushed ourselves this season, both in terms of endurance, difficulty, and seriousness of routes. I climbed my first Grade V routes, some seriously runout crux pitches, and had my first 12 hr + climbing days. Mike has been crushing it post ankle surgery as well.

Since I can’t possibly write up all of the climbing we have done this summer, here is a synopsis of the highlights. You can expect to see trip reports for a few of these spectacular routes. Let us know if you want to see a trip report for any of these routes!warbonnet-summit-sunset
