Mountain Skills Climbing Guides and Gunks Rock Climbing Instruction

3 H’s

Hit the cliff with Debby and the 3 H’s.  Hot, hazy, and humid was the call for the day.  We decided to climb some multi-pitch routes in the Near Trapps during the morning and stay close to the ground and in the shade later in the day.  I did the Layback 5.5 as a warm up and to get the coffee shakes out of me.  Next was Yellow Ridge 5.7.  Pitch 3’s exposure is amazing, nothing but air in all directions.  Debby had no problem at all with either route and easily cruised each crux.  We finished the day with Frog’s Head 5.6- and Grease Gun Groove 5.6.

The Near Trapps is a nice way to escape the crowds on a busy weekend.  Hike all the way to the end and enjoy the day climbing alone.
