Climbing Trip - El Cajon Pics

After a 2 hour approach from down at the base of the valley, we climbed a few pitches at El Cajon, and it was epic.  Epic in all the good ways.

As you can see, there is are quite a few vertical feet between where we were, and the base of the valley.  Stairmaster has got nothin' on El Cajon.

It has been raining a lot due to an El Nino year, so the grass was quite lush.  Love was in the air.

Once we got up at the base of the climbs, a fierce breeze picked up.  Hats were donned under helmets, polypro under shells.   We layer like champs.

I managed to cram my helmet on top of a warm hat.

A few pitches up, that wall below me is just a bit off vertical.

This pic was taken after I climbed past Ian and his awesome hanging belay.  It is looking down the cliff to the valley below.

Awesome hat head at the end of the day!

We were treated to a lovely sunset at the end of our adventure.
