wall 1: kid wall

Filed under: climbing, guest, house, IKEA, update — mgcg @ 2:13 pm

one more item off the list to completing the remodel in the back rooms of the house was checked off this morning.  the kid climbing wall in the guest room.  aaron and i look forward to much fun setting problems and dreaming of when we can get the garage filled with more wood and holds and overhangs.  noah had the FA (first ascent) and will be back to climb more soon.  even though it’s only 8 feet high, it gives a good pump in the arms!  yes!

fitting more holds:

from the hallway:

GET IT!

camping with the matts

Filed under: climbing, fire, Mountains, vacation — mgcg @ 1:28 pm

a few weeks back the bates came back to CO.  cate and i went down to the springs for suzy’s surprise bday party and we had a good time seeing them.  we miss them.  of course, during their stint here, matt HAD to go camping.  so i obliged.  ;p

matty b’s site:

matty g’s site:

time to get a fire going.  found a great fire ring someone put some time/effort into.

now, off to search for boulders to climb.

didn’t have to walk far to see some, but most were unclimbable due to lack of holds or chossy crumbling mess.

we did find a couple that we could flail up!

pretty teeny plants to greet you at the top:

matt also showed off his tree climbing prowess.  you can see why we get along so well.

back to camp to cook some grub and chat and go to bed before dark.  🙂

miss you already, matt.
