Vantage Rock

October 10th, 2004

Sam, John, Emily and I headed over to Vantage (aka Frenchman's Coulee) for some fall sunshine and good rock. This was my second time at Vantage and I really enjoyed the climbing. There is consistently steep climbing with fantastic crack climbs and fun sport routes. Also, because every column basically holds a few climbs, you can top rope harder routes right next door. A fine time was had by all whence the chocolatey night enveloped us...
