Luther Spires with Hitek Homeless


One strange thing about living and working from a camper for a year is that we knew of several other couples doing the same thing, but we were always in different places. Now that we’ve stayed in one place for a while one of them finally came within range and we finally get to meet in person! Jenn and Johnny of hitekhomeless.net are also the developers behind freecampsites.net and rvdumpsites.net. We enjoy trading stories and take them up the nearby Luther Spires climbing area for a little climbing.

Despite a grunt of an approach, this is a good place for a little group climbing. Clouds keep us cool right up until my last pitch when they cover me in a little rain.

Johnny – Jane Spy 5.7

Jenn – Jane Spy 5.7

Ann – Beer and a Hot Dog, Two Bucks 5.8

Ann – Steak Sauce, 5.10a

Dylan – See Thru 5.8

Rain

Ann – Mixed Emotions 5.10a

Our routes: Jane Spy 5.7, Beer and a Hot Dog, Two Bucks 5.8, Cheap Commercial Steak Sauce, Two Fifty 5.10a, See Through 5.8, Mixed Emotions 5.10a

My favorite is See Through – a fairly steep crack with lots of variety.

  1. Ha, I climbed there when I was in college at Chico. Good stone, nice enough area, rather ‘eh’ climbs. But the atmosphere was very nice.

    I will send you two an email.

  2. Strangely enough that makes me like the place a little more – a “full circle” kind of thing 🙂 I bet you would’ve liked the routes at the neighboring “luther rock” half better.
