Valley of the Sun

With final exams over and a brand new set of picks it must be time to climb. Brenden, Kevin, Kyle, Ryan and I went to the north ghost on Saturday. Plans were to do THOS but we picked the Valley of the sun to avoid conversing with other parties that actually listen to SRD road closures. I’m sure the trout thank your selfless trek to and from mile marker 39. Does head shaking and finger wagging keep your ass warm?

The climb was great except the last pitch on the side at the top which was super brittle and platey so we left it alone. It’s super cool that someone decided to steal one of the two hangers of each of the two lowest rap anchors. I have dreams about the day I catch somebody stealing bolt hangers…don’t let it be YOU! ‘cause stealing hangers is so not cool.
