For our senior year spring break, Lauren Hebert, Mareya Becker, Skye Greenler, Tyler Harris, Matt Zia, and I went on a desert tour in search of wondrous rock climbing. We stopped first in Zion, where we climbed a four-pitch 5.7 entitled ‘Led By Sheep,’ which supposedly follows a Bighorn Sheep route up a large, slabby sandstone bluff.
A few days later, we made our way to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada. We climbed several beautiful multi-pitch routes there, sport climbed, and even bouldered a little bit on the stunningly colorful Nevada rock.
And last on our tour, we stopped at Indian Creek, UT, which is absolutely one of my favorite places on earth. We spent three days climbing splitter sandstone cracks and camping in the omnipresent red dirt of the area, and met up with climbing legend, CC’s own Chris Dickson.
All in all, it was a great road trip tour of some of the West’s best climbing, shared with lovely people.
