My first day in Escalante in about a year. I wanted to get on my project from last year, but it was seeping from the recent rains. That allowed my partner (in the photo above) and I to wander and climb some routes that we had never tried. The 5 inch crack was great fun and really allowed us to practice our hand fist stacking. It was nice because there was another crack next to it that had fingers and tight hands out some small roofs. It was just a matter of dusting off some of the sand before we were able to let the good times roll.
Nearby there was a great little thin fingers and tips crack. After some work, the sequence was unlocked and with just the right amount of try hard the route was sent. Love the unknown and love being outside. Couldn’t ask for a better climbing day.
