Despite the predictions for early morning rain, I met up with Christian Weaver at 6am this morning and headed to the Dogwood Crag in Big Cottonwood Canyon to take another swing at Little Creatures (5.11b/c).
In this humble video we tested out our new GoPro Hero 4 Black along with some fun attachments that allow us to capture some fun angles while climbing. Looking forward to using these new tools for future video.
We (Eli Kerr, Christian Weaver, and Benjamin Eaton) met at the mouth of American Fork Canyon at 5:30 am on a weekday to get in a few pitches before heading to work. We climbed at the Membrane wall and focused on getting pumped and climbing through it.

For being my second ever aid route, I found that Lunar Ecstasy was a bit hard for me to bite into. It was right outside of my experience, but well within my reach. I guess there’s never a bad time to raise the bar. Once again we took it slow and ended up sleeping two nights on the wall. I must say, there sure is something amazing about sleeping on a nylon platform that is suspended on the side of a 1,200-foot cliff.
Michael Portanda takes a lap up Rebel Yell for the first time in Big Cottonwood Canyon, UT. This route is located on the Psycobabble Wall in the Storm Mountain Picnic area where a lot of great rock climbing exists.
