Girls’ Night Out: Part 2

< Girls’ Night Out: Part 1 The words that follow are by Kelly Fowler: We made camp in an outcropping of two huge granite boulders sitting ninety degrees to each other, nudging the base of a pine tree.

Solid to our left and backs, the path ran from above, down to the right and onwards through the rocks and scrub. It felt safe to...

Early Season Ice Climbing
