A Sunday with our young disciples of the trad lifestyle. Quick half-day of climbing at Smith (the photogenic Sky Ridge
much enhanced by Justin’s hip flask filled with tequila) rounded out by an afternoon and evening of drinking…and all of it tied together nicely by stories of growing up Jersey. Almost as fun as a weekend down the shore at Lavallette!

Hiking off (experience was much enhanced by the hip flask Justin brought along).
We’ve hiked off other stuff on the Smith Rock Group before but never from Skyridge. It’s kind of a nice and scenic walk actually.
Smith Rock Group summits are visible on the right. Shiprock is at the center of the photo (Aug. 2015).
