We just returned to the coast after several days of sport climbing at the Trinity Aretes. This is a small blue limestone cliff about 1.5 hours east of Arcada. The type of climbing found here is rare in the US. Joe Kinder called it “A little piece of heaven.” It gets really hot in the middle of the day, so we have been taking a break and going swimming in a beautiful river down in the valley. The conditions have been best early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Below is a shot of Luke Parady trying Mean Streak 5.14a, a route that Chris Lindner did the first ascent on. Luke’s getting real close. We’ll keep you posted.

Joe Kinder and Collette joined the crew a few days ago as well. They are always psyched and have positive energy. I’ll try to get some rants from Joe up here soon…
