Breaking into the alpine season



Josh Varney and I headed deep into the Beartooths to try a few alpine walls.  We did some amazing climbing and established a new 2 pitch line in the area.  We didn't summit anything this trip, but it still stands out as a perfect climbing trip.  Some climbs are better when they require a few attempts; I think it's something about the preservence and the steep (inner) creative learning curve that accompanies the process that we call climbing.




A view of one of the alpine objectives we tried to climb.  The roof (5.11-) is where I took a leader fall onto a green C3.  Amazing climbing!

















Cheers, Loren
