Here is an URL that may be of interest and also the number I found.

This one had the phone number for Search and Rescue:

Search and Rescue - Ft. Carson EOC 526-5914 / 3400

I think the area code is still 719 down there.

I went a-climbing today and it was really fun, I'm a bit sore but I'm just getting back into it after not having done it for most of the winter. Rock Climbing is really good for your joints and mobility. I'm looking forward to hearing about some of you folks out there

Have you been able to get out to do another climb yet? biggrin.gif

A co-worker was up in Jackson this past weekend for vacation and spent a few days in the Tetons and in Yellowstone. He said there was still quite a bit of snow. They wanted to do the hike to Hidden Falls near Jenny Lake.

What are your favorites spots in the Tetons? thumbs_up.gif

Sorry I've been away so long I've been pretty busy lately. Some things that happen in search and rescue seem to be quite frightening, I haven't heard of many rescues ocurring this summer around our area.

@jbarron: I think my favorite spot around here is guide's wall, I haven't been in the park too much lately but it's true in many spots theres still a lot of snow. I sure hope your friends got to see hidden falls, and maybe inspiration point and cascade canyon up past it a ways because it's most definately worth seeing

It's great to see this discussion. Used to be a climber myself, mostly local and small (but great highs just the same) until a rope slipped and I went knee first into the side of the cliff.

Knee still works after they took a few shards out, but I avoid the sport now. I'm just happy when it doesn't make too much of a fuss after a massive hiking descent.

We were in the Grand Canyon last year, and saw an AMAZING guy (almost totally into the dark of evening) on a cliff along the walking path. I sat there, silent and awestruck until it was too dark to see. Gives me chills just thinking about how cool that must have been for him.

I rock climbed years ago and loved it! I would like to get back into it one day. I used to like repelling until I started rock climbing and then realized for me, after climbing, repelling is boring. It was a real way to escape from life's concerns while you were on the side of the rock.

I really should keep up with this better huh =D anyways I think it would be wonderful for you to get back into climbing it's a blast, I've never really tryed purely repelling but it sounds interesting. Last week my friends and I went climbing at Cascade Falls which is over a river/waterfall, it was really beautiful scenery and probably about the last time I'm going to do outside climbing for the rest of the year, it's Snowing already =(
