Day 28, Climbing in the Salt Lake City area


Justin took us out in the Wasatch Mountains to do some sport climbing. First up was a 150-foot 5.7ish climb in the amphitheater area.

Aside from the 30+ foot runout after the third bolt and the manky anchors at the top it was a lot of fun.

Then we hiked over to the creek for some shorter 5.10s. Dan led a 60-foot 5.10a with only one hang. Justin calls this OHRP (one hang redpoint). He led it with ease and Laurel toproped the climb (and made it with only one fall!).

The final climb of the day was a buckety 5.10b right next to the 10a. Justin led it and set up a top rope for us. We almost made it to the anchors but it was too "burly" and overhanging for us, especially with the condition we were in after the other climbs.

After getting back to Justin and Shantel's place, Justin made awesome burritos. The four of us hung out and watched a movie (well, actually the big wall nuts fell asleep within 20 minutes).
