Climbing at Reimer's Ranch

There's not really a whole lot to say about this trip. I went rock climbing at Reimer's Ranch near Austin TX for the ~50th time with my friends Les, Natasha, and Bookout (Steven Bookout- "like check a book out" as he always explains).

Reimer's Ranch is a very small county park that caters to limestone climbing and Mountain Bikers. On a busy day you might see 20 or 30 cars in the gravel parking lot. It costs $8 per car, and there is no camping allowed. There are well over 100 climbing routes, all bolted, and all very short. An average climb is around 40ft, and some might get up to 90. It's the best climbing that can be done in a day trip from home, so I'm here as often as possible.

Instead of writing alot, I'll just show you a bunch of pretty pictures.

I don't suggest trying to lead a 5.12c at the end of the day when you are already tired. We both made it a little farther than this past , but kept falling back down below the hard part. After each doing the hardest part of the route a couple of times, , falling, and repeating, we gave up and got cheap greasy burgers in town.

Natasha's first lead!

No feet required

    updaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate, you sorry excuse for a little brother. Some of us have boring desk jobs and have to live vicariously through your adventures. I WANT MORE PHOTOS. And don't you have any hot friends? Get some hot friends, and then take photos of them shirtless, mm'kay?

    See you at Easter!
