The journey in the approach

Most of the time, a day spent climbing consists of far less actual climbing than you would expect.  After meeting up with your partners, carpooling to the climbing area, hiking to the start of the climb and racking gear it is likely that you have already put in more time than you will spend actually on the route.  You could choose longer routes but then there wouldn't be as much time to hike back down, drive into town for tacos where you can then sit with your partners and talk about climbing.  In the photo we hike up one of the easier approaches among the Stansbury cliffs to climb a few routes before we decide to head back down for food.
