Trip ReportTR: Montuckans in Moab
It's a quarter till 4am and Pat's dead asleep next to me. I'm just south of SLC and he hardly notices as I exit and pull into our supermarket bivy. I can only manage to sleep for about an hour though; I’m too psyched and uncomfortable to get any real rest.
I’m back on the road and catching a beautiful sunrise outside of Green River when Pat finally comes too, he takes over and before I knew it, we were in the Castle Valley wash drinking coffee with some of the other Montuckans who had already fled south.
We quickly decided that the best thing for the head (besides the obvious) was to do a warm-up day in the Fishers…everything feels much more solid after that…
After that I’m not too sure what happened…the days that followed are a bit blurry…
The hype and crowds were said to be residing at the Creek, so we decided to stay away. Long Canyon seemed to be a better option.
Then a nice day on the Lighthouse Tower…
Liz on P1 of Northeastern Route
Psyched we talked Robin into gunning P2
On Thanksgiving the plan was to do the Fine Jade. Unfortunately once we crested the saddle we knew that the winds would be an issue. So we went on to check out the first pitches of ‘Where Have the Wild Things Gone’ and ‘Excommunication’. Cool stuff. Pics to come once acquired…
Some more random shots…
Another day on the Lighthouse…
All smiles on this thing....
As we were hanging out we also got to see our buddies Apple and Palister on Infrared.
Next thing I knew I was in Denny's in SLC at 4:30am and the manager tells us as a waitress walks by, "I've been trying to tap that for 10 years..."
WTF? Thanks for the info friend.
Man we must look greasy...
