My two rest days over the weekend were wholly uneventful, Sunday especially so. The only place to sit inside with wifi was closed and being 35 degrees and windy meant I spent most of the day in my truck reading and playing angry birds. Actually one thing did happen, I managed to run the battery in my truck dead since I was listening to music all day. I had enlist the help of Friendly Idahoan #2 to give me a jump.
Monday finally came and I had a slow morning waiting for it to warm up a bit before I started my hike out. After warming up I hiked up to the green wall.
I spent two weeks in Joe’s but more on that later. I want to talk about Idaho.
I rolled up to Almo, Idaho on Monday night. Almo is home to two climbing areas: Castle Rocks and City of Rocks. From what I can tell so far they are both fairly small in terms of developed bouldering. Fortunately a few locals we’re coming out to Castle Rock on Tuesday. I met up with Mike & Tammy McClure, Mike Bockino, and Lauren Bell. They showed me around the two main boulders in Castle: The Taco Roof and The Green Wall. Taco Roof is home to Warpath and half a dozen other problems. It’s a big cave, more impressive than Martini Roof. That being said roofs generally don’t inspire me so I didn’t try much there. After starting in the roof, we moved up to the Green Wall which is an absolutely stunning wall.
