Labor Day Wknd Crestone Needle Trip

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Group of four USAF climbers from three different bases meeting up in southern Colorado for the Crestone Needle and some fly fishing. ¬†Should be a great weekend! ¬†Thanks to a great veterans program called “Project Healing Waters“, some of the climbers will be fishing with rods they made under the instruction of several top-notch fly fishermen in Amarillo, TX called the “Amarillo Fly Guys“.

Here’s a great photo of Crestone Needle, which will entail a pre-dawn start to prevent getting stuck behind other groups. ¬†It’ll be just a few pitches of 5.7 trad climbing and the rest will be scrambling. ¬†It’s kinda the unofficial start of Everest training! ¬†Lots more trips to come, including a potential for Mt. Whitney next weekend.

Want to join us for some training climbs around NM, CO, WA, CA or elsewhere this fall/winter?  Let us know!
