    Even picked up a downy companion once. Let him dry out and set him on a rock hoping his second flight would be more successful. He was very curious about the climbing we were doing.

    But the reward is some of the best climbing this state has to offer

    Good spirits on navigating the ‘road block’, too…

    What's your bungee jump rig?

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    It's an old haul line from aid climbing. 'Static' but it has enough stretch to it for a good rope swing. There's a ledge on the right side that you climb up to, run away from the bridge, and rip through the canyon coming back the other direction.
