Mt Lemmon

Filed under: Climbing, Roadtrip — Matt Stamplis @ 11:24 am

So after scaring ourselves silly on the routes at Cochise we decided to do some slightly less committing climbing. So we drove back towards Tucson and we’re currently hanging out on Mt. Lemmon. Despite being in Southern Arizona it gets cooold at night (around freezing). Fortunately, there’s lots of climbing in the sunshine and we’ve been able to get on some fun routes. The climbing here is quite a bit different than Cochise with very short approaches: we just park on the side of the road and walk a few minutes to the climbing.

Right now it looks like the weather is taking a turn for the worse, though, and we might be sitting for the next day or so before we can climb again. Oh well, guess it’ll give us time to catch up on our reading.

Did I mention that there’s a river running at the campground? After so many weeks not having running water, being by the river is such a fortune. Washing dishes is so much easier and we even get to clean ourselves everyday. Yesterday Joanne washed her hair by the river and was screaming each time I poured freezing cold water on her head. She described the cold as if someone is stepping on her head.
