Joe's Valley Trip

Spring break marked a return to the sandstone bouldering mecca of Central Utah-ORANGEVILLE. This would be my 3rd spring break trip, and after the end of the trip I counted AT LEAST 30+ climbing days  I've spent in the valley of Joe. I'm constantly affixed by the idea of returning to an area, being slightly stronger/training some weak point of my climbing and having 100s of "new" problems to choose from. This trip I finally sacked up and tried problems I've been "saving." Though the shear number of v-points wasn't as overwhelming as last trip (*see previous trip post about Joe and Scotty doing almost every 7 in the Joe's), I left content with  MASSIVE progress on projects and a couple of sends. 

Enough wordy bullshit, here are some pics....

Clayton working "Golden Plates"

Mike trying hard, straight outta the truck

Kirsten's TH face on "Bring the Heatwole."Notice the vein in forehead popping. 

Myself FINALLY being able to do the lockoff on "Kinda Brawney"

Clayton working "Stand UP" to Resident Evil

 Kirsten learning how to knee bar on "Chips"

End of first day at New Joes. Clayton is content.


We spend our rest day in Moab. I've only bouldered at Big Bend and climbed up at Mill Creek, never spent anytime in any of the national parks. Arches NP is def worth paying the $10 to have your mind blown by the geology/scenery combo.

Delicate arch

Kirsten doing some rock-yoga with the opening moves of "Phoney Baloney"

Yup. Bouldering trips sure are hard.

Ramiro's hands are 5 days ON. "He is like, beast-mutant man...I'm having fun, but just not when I'm doing the highballs, just when I'm on top of the boulder" -Post flash of "The Wind Below"

 Myself utilizing all the not-so-secret beta on "The Worm Turns"

Kirsten sending "Stumble Bum Traverse." Such a little Fart Figgin' Stumblebum

 ALWAYS projects for next time....my highpoint on "Worst Case Scenario."
