We spent a week climbing at City of Rocks. For the first night we camped at Campsite #36.
The weather was questionable with some snow and rain.

The next day we went to Castle Rock hoping that the weather would be nicer there. Hunter leading Big Time.
We also climbed Shock & Awe on Castle Rock West Buttress. This was a really nice climb.
The weather finally started to clear at sunset.
The next day we climbed on Elephant Rock. Here Hunter is working up Columbian Crack

We scrambled to the top of Lookout Point before dinner.
It was super winding on top.

Should have taken the snowboards with us.

Claudia on Piglet Tip Toes
The weather turned for the worse, so no more climbing for the day. A few pictures from Camp
Right at sunset the weather started to clear. Should be a good day for climbing tomorrow.
Chris and myself headed to Stienfell's Dome to climb a five pitch route called Sinocranium
It goes up the right side of the big face. Jason and Claudia climbed a route up the left side in the shade.
Nice views as we worked our way up to the rock.
