  • Grotto Canyon climbs

    Xmas Day 25-Dec-2018

    Went for a late day solo up Grotto as it got dark. First pitch was a little wet. Second pitch was wetter. By the time I'd down-climbed, I was soaked. Lots of trickling water, new ice, and chandelier.

    The bolted rap stations were quite high still (maybe too high for some) so in an attempt to keep the rope dry and get a little more mileage I'd decided to down-climb and that might have been a good plan had I had waterproof pants and jacket. I had water running off my elbows and wet knees.

    The climb is building and waterproofs are advised.

    His looked in reasonable shape but not huge yet.

    Hers isn't yet in great shape but at least its climbable.
