I headed back out to the Supes on Saturday, however, this time I was chasing obscure climbing walls instead of snow and waterfalls.

I got some top rope action in and belayed for Pernell on some pretty tough leads to start off and finished with a fun 90 foot, 5.6 crack lead. It was a deceptively tough lead in spots, but it’s always a little more nerve racking on lead. Especially, when relying on your own pro.

I took a scary little fall on my second piece starting off. I was manteling myself up and fell completely backwards. An exhilarating and slightly scary experience all in one. My first thought was to marvel at the fact that my gear stayed in. My second thought was to marvel at the fact that I did not get hurt. Not to be deterred, I got back on the climb and sent it. First ground up ascent on the newly established route and probably last because Wild Horse Wall does not appear to see a lot of traffic.

A great climbing area, I plan to head back. Great views and a unique area.
