Labor Day Wknd Crestone Needle Trip

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!
