This was the AMC Grad Climb for 5 new students: Todd, Tom, Cheryl, Helmi and Brian. It was my first time on Sven Tower III and I really loved it. This tower has a short 15 minute approach so that is always nice. I believe there are 3 partially bolted routes on this Tower so the routes are mixed. We set up 2 of the routes (5.7 and 5.6), one of them being 3 pitches. I think we had 6 ropes and 2 full racks of pro with us. It was a big project logistically to move 12 people up and down the routes. The weather was perfect and the climb was pure fun.

Here is the short video I made:

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
