Trip Report
TR : Ferguson Canyon, Utah. (part 3 of ????)
Thursday July 23, 2009 3:33am


Third stop on our tour.... Ferguson Canyon. This place is OK! Lots of dogs, good crag climbing, short approach and plenty of shade. We only did a handful of climbs, and did not get a lot of good pics, but hey.... whaddya want... it's free entertainment, and probably on the companies dime. Slide show is about 4.5 minutes long.



Anyway, standard caveats in force, Quicktime 7 at a minimum, plant your mouse over the "I " button in the upper right corner for captions to the pics, mouseover the bottom center of the images to navigate, let it have time to load, blah blah blah.....

Prod: Like two weeks

MrE: soundtrack info will cost you beers. Guessing the soundtracks on these TR's is right up there with guessing the routes.

Nice one. Glad to see you made it into the Freon canyon while behind the Zion curtain, and the dogs and roving bands of stoned teens didn't ruff ya up too bad.

Here are the routes:

Freggy is a nice little gem when the creek is running - especially on hot days.

Most people barely get past the Watch Tower. But even so you can get a few quickies.

Oh course running a lap on Extreme Unction is mandatory, that is if there is not a line.

Yeah, cool and classic SLC craggin'!

Thought I saw the Devil Tree in there (doin' a route next to it).

Goldenfingers, Guano Roof, Beef Jerky, Benediction, Fortress, Painted Bird...great stuff...

Extreme Unction's worth the wait, if there's a line. Just be careful of the TR rigger's tossin' a rope down on ya when you're leadin' it...

Even a place to keep the beverages cooled off...

This must be an educated crowd with speed reading skills... or at least normal reading abilities. I watched the video and made a foundering attempt to read the captioning before it went off-screen.

Yes, I move my lips while reading. Then again, maybe the music distracted me? Yeah, let's blame my reading ability on the music.

ummm..... you lip movers can use the controls at the bottom center of the images (mouse over) to pause, play and forward/reverse.

Dang, I can't remember who did that tune, though. I think I have the CD. Want to say Thievery Corporation but don't think so.

Come on, someone, pony up.
