Following Nationals in Colorado I flew to Las Vegas to climb outside in Southwest Utah at some famous limestone crags. The weather has been pretty sporadic; to start, it was really quite perfect (though hot for some maybe!)... warm and sunny! Then, the storm came in and it was movie-day time due to cold weather, dark ominous clouds, and pouring rain. Today the skies cleared and I went back to the Virgin River Gorge to climb. I had a successful day =] I did the first female ascent, 2nd ascent (after Jonathan Siegrist!), of “Atonement;” a sustained crimpy limestone test piece.

Chris Noble was on-scene shooting photos, and as per usual, he captured some great shots!

Tomorrow I will go up to Cathedral to climb in the big cave again, which hopefully is all-dry. Fingers crossed!

The purpose of this trip was to shoot photos for an upcoming book that Chris Noble is writing and doing the photography for, contracted by Falcoln Guides. Stay tuned =]
