Spring cleaning.

Every spring the climbing bug hits hard here in SLC. A group of us regularly participate in an event known as "No Star Tuesday" where we seek out routes in the guidebook the authors deem unworthy or lack luster. More often than not these routes are hidden gems that just need some love. Sometimes however we use these gatherings as an opportunity to give back via public service.

This week we chose a rainy day to clean up one of our local crags, and do a little trail work. Capped off with some grilling, and talking sh#t of course...

Always good to see the giving back. Never gave that much thought to banana peels - now I will.

My friend used to climb on the east coast - they'd have a different kind of cleaning every season - he said they would scrub the routes of moss/etc that had built up over the off-season. I think his best friend took a terrible fall doing this solo, but he lived through it.

One small boulder in the parking lot simply got flipped onto another side in order to hide the tag from the well known and very deadly “X3″ gang.
You might want to go over your life insurance policy in the next couple days.
