Granite Knob

thumbnail

It was one of those trips where we pack up the car, take off, and then decide to go somewhere else. We were headed for Alabama Hills, but I just couldn’t let the turnoff up 9-mile Canyon go by. So we went to Granite Knob, a somewhat remote, lush, meadowy spot in the northern Domelands. It was the right choice, and my ankle handled the short approach and a few 5.8 toprope climbs with no pain! It felt good to climb again, and the routes were at a perfect level for Ann as well. I’m still worried about jamming my ankle, but I know that at least I can climb on it.

  1. wow, looks good. i wanna go. i wish you had more climbing pics in there.

    looks like ann was wasting good tequilla on margaritas. BAD!

    lot greener than i thought it would be up there.

  2. Yeah, we just don’t get pics while we’re belaying. Of course if there were three of us…

    Ann also thought it was a shame about the tequila, but we weren’t in the mood for shots. She told me, ‘They have the best tequila and the worst marguerita mix. Hmm.’
