City of Rocks

Kami Hardcastle sent us this great post!

My great friend Ace Kvale invited me on a photo shoot for Marmot in the City of Rocks. Rock climbing, camping and the chance to hang with a crew of some incredible people, how could I say no? Ian Boyer (ropegun, guide) Beth Rodden (climber extraordinaire), Ace Kvale (legendary outdoor photographer), Sinuhe Xavier (LA filmmaker and former pro skier) and Adrian Ballinger (guide, Mountaineer and Alpenglow founder)

We climbed a lot, laughed a lot, and cooked up nightly feasts. Our Camp Chef stovewas truly the center of attention. Beth, being the fantastic Chef that she is, cooked up some of the best burritos I have ever tasted! Fresh veggies stir-fried with beans and rice. We were even able to warm our tortillas on the table-top grill! Morning came and Sinuhe cooked up some incredible eggs and sausage for everyone. Food, friends and climbing in the outdoors. Nothing beats it!
