Grotto Canyon

Both yesterday and today have been beautiful, sunny, crisp and clear.

Yesterday Nick eventually roused himself out of bed (I don't want to give the wrong impression, normally he's as keen as I am when there's climbing to be had) and we set off to find Grotto Canyon. Take two!

Here's Nick sitting on the "crampon seat" of the car with the Beymag plant behind.

This time we had no problems finding it at all. The canyon's walls have pictures marked on them by Canadian Indians, who considered the canyon a sacred place, but we didn't spot any.

I led a WI3, before Nick led the first WI4 of the holiday - "Hers". Here he is, having led the right hand side, top-roping the left.
