Black Velvet Canyon, 2015

A few updates from Summer. Adam and I climbed the NE face of Pingora in the Wind River range. Our first alpine pursuit, and a lucky one at that. We somehow escaped the notorious mosquitoes of the Cirque du Towers and managed to bag 8 pitches of beautiful, sustained granite climbing without freezing our butts off.


4am start, massive bagel consumption, one hour approach where we got schooled by a swedish couple in their 50′s, faced with the first traverse pitch that had me thinking..., sustained 200ft pitches, sketchy stepovers , Adam leading the offwidth pitch like a pro mama, unexpected chimney pitch where we got off route, stuck rope on rappel, single bud light pound with a 14 mile boulder filled hike back to the car on empty, immediately crashing next to the car, waking at 6am and driving 14 hours back to riverside. Started my last year of school the next day.
