Mary wanted a bit of a workout... sounded good to me, so strapped on the weight vest... pack... and headed up Alamo Canyon, sort of thinking about the mid dryfalls up in Blind. As we worked our way up it occurred to me that lower Blind was a bit dull, and we'd used it on a number of recent outings. Alternative: The Twins... in particular, west cut. So... up and into that nicely bit of vertical. The vest and wrong shoes made it an over challenge!

In no time we both had scored our workout for the day!

Once up on the Dark Cliffs... an easy loop around and into Blind... Mary's first trip up canyon. I thought there were 3 dryfalls mid canyon. We hit two?

Good outing... descended the Gap; that is by far the best route out and down.

I was beat up...the weight vest may be the key to getting some muscle mass back?
