city of rocks - car camp and rock climb - June 10, 2018

City of Rocks is a mecca of climbing, just over the Utah/Idaho border in rural Idaho. Varnished and pocketed granite is the name of the game here. The granite ages with an iron based varnish on it and when the varnish wears through, it forms pockets that wear faster than the varnish. The result is pockets with edges or just edges. The majority of the routes have mixed protection, so knowledge and experience in trad climbing is highly recommended. I have booked site 50 for 3 nights. Please RSVP is you would like to join me, share the site, or book another site for the same dates. All participants are responsible for bringing their own climbing gear and helmets. Ropes with top rope anchor kits will be provided.
