The Weak and the Weary

Coming back from the southern hemisphere, I was pretty psyched to be back in the USA. I missed three things or maybe a combination of three things, ice, mixed, and mud climbing. After two days of rest, I put my duffels back in the car and headed off west. We stopped off at Red Rocks in Vegas. The weather was pretty crappy the whole time with snow among other problems. We mainly just cragged and then checked out the Vegas Hose Monster (WI5) 40 minutes outside of Vegas.

After a late start, we only got about halfway up before it got dark and we headed down. It was nice to get on some ice. Other parts of the trip included Zion, St. George, and perhaps a couple minor mixed FA’s in Ouray. Here is a couple pictures.
