Rock climbing at the City of Rocks in Idaho

My family and a group of good friends (and dogs) met at the City of Rocks in South Central Idaho this past weekend. We enjoyed a myriad of weather conditions, but, were able to get a good amount of climbing in. A few years ago, I took a big lead fall that generated enough force to lift my wife, who was belaying, ten feet into the air! While the fall occurred on an overhanging route and was clean, it screwed up my lead climbing head pretty good. The routes I led this weekend, albeit easy in grade, were clear-headed and entirely enjoyable once again! Aside from climbing, just being outside in such a spectacular playground with my family and friends, enjoying the weather, sights, and sounds couldn’t have been better. If you get the chance to travel to “The City” soon, the moist Spring we’ve been experiencing is sure to produce amazing wildflowers. Currently, the creeks are flowing, snowdrifts abound and are even blocking vehicle access to the Breadloaf climbs, and the water taps are still locked! Get out there!
