Draper's Bluff Rock Climbing Trip

We went climbing over the weekend to southern Illinois, by Marion and Carbondale. It was lots of fun! We took the VW camper and went with two people from work (UIC's climbing wall). We loaded up the bus friday night, and started on our trip.

We arrive at Draper's Bluff. It is a short hike to the rock face.

Setting up at the rock face. We got all our rope, quick draws, helmets, harnesses, and shoes ready.

Romy and Dave bouldering. This is their "warm up."

Setting up the 5.9 route.

All these pics are up on our flickr account.
