Big Springs Rock Climbing!!

leave a comment »

Jay and Heimei joined me again this year for a few days of rock climbing.  August 1st was day one, so we took it mellow and went to a sector of Big Springs that’s new to me:  The Stumps.  Big Springs is better known for Clark Canyon, but the stumps featured 60-150′ trad climbs up remarkably good welded tuff.  We climbed a 5.6, 5.7, 5.7, 5.9, and finally a 150′ 5.8 with a great finish not shown in the guidebook.  What a great time!
