Girls Climbing Weekend

With Marcus in Red Rocks with a crew of NC folks and Phil manning the shop, I was the lucky participant in a Girls Climbing Weekend this past weekend. I joined up with Katherine & Katelyn and hoofed it to Chattanooga, where the steep rock abounds. Saturday we had a beautiful day at T-wall and climbed some goodies like Motor Booty, Bugs From Hell, Electric Rats and the classic Digital Macabre. Thanks to abundant daylight, we headed back to the car around 8:00 and scarfed down delicious vegan food at Sluggo's.

We made it out the door Sunday with some determination, despite buckets of rain falling out of our ears, and headed to Little River Canyon in Alabama. This place is gorgeous and well worth a trip- that is if you like steep, overhanging, sandstone sport climbing that stays dry in a downpour. We were rewarded by super fun and ultra pumpy routes.

I am really needing a nap today though, as it has been a while since I climbed anything so steep. I better rest up, because this weekend's forecast for Brevard looks stellar and 475B is open for business again, making the access to Looking Glass climbs a breeze.

Phil was happy to report a busy weekend at the shop. The new Montrail Mountain Masochists seem to be running, not walking out the door!
