Sorry I have been slow to post recently. On Saturday, Rich and I drove out to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison to climbing Astrodog (5.11+, 14 pitches). Having had two good friends get seriously injured in the Black I was pretty nervous rapping into the 2000 foot canyon with no way back out but to climb up. However, everything went smoothly and Rich and I topped out just before it got dark. The Black is one of the more stunning climbing areas I have been too in terms of the shear size and beauty of the area, not to mention how wild and untouched if feels. I am very excited to have done this and am looking forward to future climbs in the Black.
