Scratching the Surface

Exploring sections of West Chevelon Canyon, finding many big roofs with few holds. 

3 watering holes for 3 dogs

Finding one of these monsters with holds makes all the searching worthwhile

Dan after a devastating ground fall off a highball in Kelly Canyon. He ended up with a diagnosis of broken knee, dislocated elbow and broken/dislocated foot.  We we're able to haul him out of the canyon on crash pads, and get him to the hospital in the back of Thomas' subaru. Two months later, he is healing fast and should be back to climbing in a few months.
