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.

The Chalk of Destiny
A few months back I bolted and cleaned a two pitch crack and face route in Unaweep. The Chalk of Destiny is 5.10 to 5.11+ in its two pitches. First one gear next mixed.
I finally got to climb on it after work for 2 hours this week! Whew. With three runs on it, we were able to free the techy thin face and crack route. Here are a couple of photos of Ben and I as the sun set.

You know what I am saying, "AHHHH YEAHHHH!"
Ben gastoning to get to the next grips at the start of the pitch

Perfect finger locks on this one.
