Lone Peak Cirque and Desert Rock!! Where did my skis go?

Passion, one way or another. Six of one, half dozen of the other.
It was a low snow year making early access to the Alpine Rock way easier.

Lone Peak Cirque.  
 The summit face.
 Question Mark wall, Looking down on lake Utah.
 Brennan, Bret, and I getting geared up for Triple Overhang.
Because I'm the newest to Rock climbing, I get the lead on the 5.10a Overhangs.
Much like skiing a big mountain line, it's all in your head.
View from my sleeping bag.
 Base camp, with ice cold running water.
 Alpine Granite has this guy hooked.
 Dropping back down to the SCL heat.

Well the snow is still out there to get, but as you can see I've changed gears.
Desert trip!!
 Ancient Art.
 Here we are getting ready for the cat walk.
And yes I free climbed the 5.11a that most aid.
 The wind was a bit scary.The feeling was amazing though.
 I still make these when I go to the beach.

When you're in the desert, you have to get as much of it as you can.
Indian Creek was just a skip away.
 Super Crack!
Some off width.
We did a couple of days at the creek but I failed to get good photos.

Till next time thanks for looking.
