A Good Day

This is one of the shots from the climbing we did on Saturday. Greyrock mountain is a huge granite dome just northwest of Ft Collins. The hike in is pretty rough, 2 miles with some serious elevation gain. Usually, after doing such a massive approach, Mark and I climb one of the 4-5 pitch routes to the summit of the dome. Liv usually hangs out at the bottom and guards the packs from rodents. But on Saturday, there were signes up everywhere warning of active bears in the area and loudly dissuading everybody from leaving pets and children un-attended.

We decided to keep Liv with us and explore the South Slabs area. These are a group of single pitch climbs that turned out to be really nice. We still got in 4 pitches of climbing, and Liv got to spend the day sleeping next to us on the ledge.
