Peaceful Valley

Hey all. I had a cabin over the weekend in Peaceful Valley. Cabin butted up to a great looking wall with three bolted routes. Owner said as long as you were renting feel free to climb all you want. Anyone familiar with the routes or area?

Thanks

Really appreciate all of the feedback. Definitely hope to climb higher and harder grades. Just setting my sights on some early gains and confidence building climbs. This forum has already provided some great feedback and good connections. Glad to be here.

Re: Gear

Agree a guide will be helpful/essential. Trying to put together a list of things to shop for as well.

Thanks everyone.

Re: Gear

Thanks. My partner and I seem to have all of that covered. Still working on the necessary knowledge piece. Spent a good part of the night hanging on a wall working on the steps for cleaning. I have a grigri but felt I should get an ATC/Rappel device as well and the knowledge to use it.

Gear

What do you all recommend a new sport climber have in their gear set up? Looking to climb in the 40 - 50 ft range 5.7/5.8.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Re: Gym to Crag Suggestions

Thanks for all of the feedback. Rest assured I will not be going out alone. When I took up snowboarding I took lessons and spent the first full season on the bunny slope. I did not even venture out on green run until my second year. With that said I love reading and researching the things that I do ...

Gym to Crag Suggestions

Hey all. Just wanted to ask about good resource material for reading on making the transition from gym climbing to crag climbing. I have seen a book Climbing: From Gym to Crag (published in 2000) on the subject and wondered if it was a good place to start. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank...
