Despite a foreboding forecast for Penticton, a few of us headed east in search of dry rock over the Thanksgiving weekend. It ended up being a good weekend of climbing while it was dry, and excellent wine tasting when it wasn't!
Dan on Genetic Mirror, a fun 10c at the Fortress. The route goes up alongside the face crack, and then hits a smooth cruxy bulge at the top, fun! We climbed a few other routes at Red Tail, since we didn't want to go too far in case it rained. One thing we noticed about people in Penticton, is that nobody wears goretex, or carries around an umbrella even when it's raining. I wonder why.
As it turns out, a little bit of wax and some pine cones makes a great candle.
One rainy day, nine climbers, six different wineries, many bottles of wine (and cheese)!
Enjoying our campfire next to the lake at the Banbury campground.
