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.
