Boulder Weekend Part 2


Sunday is climbing day. So, we got up this morning and went back to the Gregory Canyon/Amphitheater Area at the foot of Flagstaff Mountain. Dan led what we thought was a 5.2 route up the first pinnacle. It was not the route we thought it was, as most of the climbing was 5.6 or 5.7. Dan also had a difficult time with the route finding and really meandered his way up. The top of the pinnacle, about 110ft off the deck, was very pretty and offered great view of the surrounding rock.

We rappelled down the north side of the rock and tried to find another route to climb and then eventually get back to our packs. Unfortunately, our guide book sucks and we didn't find what we were looking for. Being that it was around 1:00 it started raining a bit, as it does every afternoon, so we decided to pack it up. We left the parking lot straight for Neptune's to pick up a much better book for the area. Hopefully next time we'll have a more successful day.
