Early Spring Raging - Canyon Cain

 
Early Spring Raging - Canyon Cain
 
April 02, 2012 - 
 

So for my first blog post I thought I might just start off with a recap of what I have been doing lately. Over the winter it was pretty cold so there wasn't much outside climbing or highlining to be done. That is when Mason Earle got the idea to create a roof crack trainer under our deck that is about 15 foot long. It started off as just a single offwidth crack going from about 4 inches to 6 or 6.5. From there we made a thinner version of the crack trainer that was about .75 to 1 inch wide and a 2-3 inch crack on the other side.

 

Once it was warm enough to climb outside, which was about mid-February, we started our routine of trying to get to Indian Creek almost every weekend. Since then I have marked a few climbs off of my tick list such as Way Rambo 5.12, Not That Funny 5.12, and Sicillian 5.11+. But of course marking climbs off of my tick list, there have been more added. I have added Air Sweden 5.13R, Slice and Dice 5.12, and Death of a Cowboy 5.13.

We have recently started up two towers (Echo Tower and Cottontail Tower at the Fisher Towers location to rig about a 200 ft. highline in between them. This has been the most recent project of the monkeys.
