Thanks for all the kind and generous comments!It was an amazing trip.

Tork,as for stories...It was quite a relaxing and calm trip.The only somewhat "spicy" situation was the first day we arrived and headed up to do the Kor-Ingalls.On the approach the winds were kicking up probably around 40mph+ and clouds were looking ominous when we arrived at the base...it was quite the scene.A party was self rescuing,leaving ropes behind as well as other previous parties that had bailed/left stuck ropes(it was stuck ropes central).We roped up and enjoyed the climb.We ended carrying two of the stuck ropes to the top(a third rope rope is still stuck quite deep on p3 and needs to be cut).A nice party we met on top from SLC was nice enough to take one of the ropes down with them.The original owners were found through mountainproject.

Climbing on calcite is something else.Sandstone is quite humbling without calcite,calcite on top of sandstone was interesting...

Moab people and their dogs are quite friendly =).The tap water tastes wonderful,the splitters were more amazing than expected.The crackhouse was a dream and everything I had imagined it would be.I could go on and on...

Mal =D,we kept it simple with premade soups,stews and sandwiches,just heating up coals for the biscuits when needed.
Breakfast everyday was a bread roll with Coppa,prosciutto meats,swiss cheese,parm melted in the dutch oven,then over easy eggs(over hard for me)on top.A nice cup of black coffee and piece of chocolate.
Thanksgiving dinner was turkey stew with stuffing browned on top and biscuits,with a brownie cake dessert.

Tellkhh,we used a few different cameras,a couple regular point and shoots,android/iphone and one dslr.We both were taking as many shots whenever we could with whatever camera was available.

The weather was very nice,climbing towers is amazing,everything was amazing,no stress,a peaceful trip,couldn't have asked for more,quite blessed and thankful for so many things.Very excited to head back next year.

Johnny! Thanks for bringing down that half rope off castleton dude. We brought that longer length back to SLC with us, and found the owner right away. Glad you guy's had a good time in Utah!

Where is that cool looking roof crack? I was climbing in the Creek & Fisher Towers (Ancient Art) over that same period. Great weather! Castleton Tower looks wonderful :-)
