Clear Creek Caving-
This past Sunday, Marcelo talked a few of us into an underground excursion in clear creek. A fun little fault cavern with several small squeezes offered up a couple hours of non-climbing entertainment. Yes. "Mano". Hand.
Everyone was psyched at the bouldering potential found both near the entrance and exit to the cave. Maybe we should take some pads up sometime!
The pinches and confinement begin right as you drop through the entrance and underground.
If you are at all claustrophobic, this little trip is not for you.
Yes, this is an actual pinch that you squeeze through. Marcelo squirmed through inch by inch and I followed.
It leads to a fault about a foot wide that runs for 30 feet. Very cool.
Strangely enough, Marcelo has to go down and under the block frank is standing on to get to him. It's a labyrinth down there!
This photo was shot by frank back down towards where I was at in the previous photo.
There is quite a bit of graffiti in the cave. Frank is dropping down into the biggest room which is close to one of the entrances.
Doc said the finger MIGHT be ready for super-jugs in February.
Until then, no straining the finger and rest.
More "things to do besides climbing installments" coming soon.
