Sunny Skies for Climbing & Buying

We started the weekend with the First Annual Gear Heads at the Asheville Agricultural Center. Thanks to all who participated! Gorgeous weather beckoned, and Sunday I headed to the middle wall of Hawksbill with a crew of Brevard area climbers.

Hawksbill is a summertime favorite for area climbers since the wall stays shaded most of the day, and the views of Linville Gorge are phenomenal. The climbs go from moderate trad favorites like Star Trekkin to steep, crimpy sport and mixed climbs like In The Line of Fire (nice send Peter!) and Appalachian Spring. While I found Tips Ahoy to be a terribly painful battle with holds akin to the edge of butter knives, Carpe Freeum is not to be missed! Below pics are Brian Williams on In the Line of Fire.
