Sport Climbing at Grassi Lakes


Gear Used:

The mountain sheep are known to ‘accidentally’ kick rocks from above, so it’s always a good idea to wear a helmet.


You’ve always got to make sure your backpack with your food is closed up, or these brave little chipmunks will find a way in there.


Once we found a free spot on the wall to climb, we started getting ready.

      Awesome pictures! I have to agree with you about the squirrel. As much as I love to hike, I can never picture myself in some of these places. I think I would faint. Lol!
