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.
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
