Arethusa again

9-03-2019

David-Stephen, Jess, Ev, Madie, David, Tim and meeee

The only way to back up a fairly late night in Rocky would be a reasonably early start for another canyon

And so, blearied eyes and muddle-headed I find myself driving up to join Madie and Ev waiting for the others for a quick trip through Arethusa canyon.

I was suffering sleep deprivation and the trip is a bit of a blur so I’ll let the photos tell the things

Standard way in
More exciting way in
It really is a stunning bit of canyon

Butterbox gets all the glory for being an adventurous canyon with climbing exit but for me Arethusa is hands down a better all round canyon and the climb out excellent.

Ev asked if she could lead and we happily let her. Wow she handled the climbs like a bomb and set belays like seasoned pro. So cool to watch

Madie on the other hand…..

Sure my climbing style sucked the big fat one too but people were kind enough not to capture that in too many photos..

And with international women’s day just gone what better way to celebrate

Party Size: 7

Time: 7hrs car to car

The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly without fear for newer experiences: Elenor Roosevelt
