Rob Pizem's blog. This blog is about my family, my training and my rock climbing adventures. I like to rock climb, boulder and be outdoors. One of my favorite things to do is to establish new climbs in new areas.

Some Rock Climbing!!!
Some of the wall that we climbed last weekend (It is about 1800ft tall).
Can you find Jesse in this photo? We are starting the first pitch.
Jesse heading up on pitch three. Say yeah to wide cracks!
Jesse joining me at belay after the 60 meter, fourth pitch crux. Most pitches on this climb are at least 40 meters long and up to 60 meters! I fell in the middle of the crux and will have to go back to complete the pitch free.
Jesse taking care of business.
Happy piz : )
Oh no!, the sun is going down quickly and we are still a long way from the top.
Jesse trying to beat the sun.
Almost out of light. You guessed it though, we ended up having to climb under the half moon and headlamps and didn't get home till midnight. Long days are what its about!
I had to put on my CAMP jacket and WindX on to stay warm as fall is approaching and the temps are beginning to drop.
