Climbing at Luskville

October 18, 2009 @ 01:04 By: gordon Category: Climbing

Climbing at Luskville 052 Last Sunday, Kerri, Parm and I went climbing with my friend Robert and his wife at Luskville. Thought I go climbing with Kerri and Parm most weekends at the gym, this was Kerri and my first time climbing on real rock since last fall.
Last year we went to Home Cliff on the Eardley Escarpment, which has a lot of routes to climb. The downside to it that it tends to be fairly busy and the hike in is a bit sucky.

Luskville, on the other hand, has a nicer hike in and isn’t as busy. In fact, there was only one other guy who was solo-climbing some of the other routes, so we had our choice of routes. Robert set a couple of ropes and we tried each of them. Then he and I climbed up to the top of the cliffs and set a couple more routes.

Climbing at Luskville 089 We climbed these routes, which were more challenging than the first set, and enjoyed some amazing views as the sun was getting closer to the horizon.

By the time we finished climbing and had the ropes coiled up, the sun was almost set, so we made our way back to the cars and arrived just as it was getting dark.

Tomorrow (Sunday) is shaping up to be fairly nice, so we’re going to head back for another day of climbing.
