Fall Break

October 6, 2011

Fall break is coming up and Thomas and I are planning a trip to the Grand Canyon. On the way from Phoenix we are hoping to climb Humphreys, the highpoint of Arizona, which should be a little challenge. I have climbed it before. As for the canyon, I’ve hiked it five times before and it will be Thomas’ first time. I Just found out the is some toprope and sport rock climbing along the rim, and we hope to climb a little in the canyon. There is a little biking at the rim, so a fixie ride would also be fun. We are also browsing some towers or buttes in the canyon that we could attempt. I am keen on O’neill Butte, just to the left of the South Kaibab trail, and Battleship, west of the Bright Angel Trail. Awhile up the rim road, Sinking Ship is another possibility. The issue now is finding routes. Wish us luck!
