Took a trip to the City of Rocks, ID last weekend with The Kitty and some friends that climb a lot.  The City is such a crazy place and I felt out of touch while the rest of the crew rattled off route and rock formation names around camp.  I feel like I’m getting a bit better with the whole rock climbing thing and starting to feel a little more confident in my abilities, but my skiing rando arms need some beefing up if I’m ever gonna be a rope gun.  These are the routes that our group climbed.
