As usual there was a bit of snow on the approach, but there is usually only a few patches left in late April.
I slowly made my way up some 5.10 slippery, slabby climbs and enjoyed the sun and warm breeze. What a great intro to the 2012 summer rock season. I'll be out there this summer and I hope I see you out there too!
***A note on hanging out below the climbs at Barrier Bluffs***
Wear your helmet and do not hang out on the large boulders that you probably have already lounged on! There were rocks the size of my head that landed 2ft away from me as I was getting stuff from my pack. I was glad I kept my helmet on even when I wasn't climbing. It really doesn't take much. Remember this if you ever go- there is rock above you that you can't see.
