Belay Specs Blog

This blog has less to do with Belay Specs and more to do with our employee's climbing and outdoor outings.  We'll talk about exciting news about Belay Specs but we'll talk much more about the trips we've taken and the places we've checked out.  We'd like to share some of our experiences in the hope that they inspire you to check the areas out for yourselves. If you read about an area or activity in one of our posts and have questions on beta, route recommendations or anything else, leave a comment and we'll try to fill you in.

Although we had camped for a few nights with Buddy, Nora, Ali, Chris and Katie we hadn’t all climbed together so we headed to the Decadent Wall in the Breadloaves to get some pitches in together. We hadn’t given enough thought to how busy the are might be on a Sunday morning and had a tough time finding routes to get on. Buddy hopped on Jay Goodwin Route (5.10a) while I put up Kibbles and Bits (5.11a) just to the left. I played with Buddy’s camera and a jig I had made to take photos through the prism. The results are pictures that can show the climber and belayer simulataneously like a blurred edge picture-in-picture effect.

These routes were fun but short and we had been hoping to climb some cracks. I managed to get in line for Adolescent Homosapien, a classic 5.7 crack. The route was really fun and takes great gear. Ali and Alana followed me up it and we rapped off the communal rap line that had be set for the day. After the route the sun came on the west facing rocks and we decided to head home and get ready for the week ahead after another great trip to the City of Rock,
