Our ambassador, Chris Nance, was gracious enough to take us on an Outdoor Retailer Show cooldown on Monday. Post show, Cons and I were pretty beat and looking for a refresh before jumping on the plane back to New Hampshire. Chris took us to a hometown crag, American Fork, just down the road from Salt Lake City.
The views were not horrible.
We were joined by Elise and Hondo the dog to make a perfect party of five. Hondo made friends with another border collie mix and flirted with the awkwardness of a middle school dance.
Honestly though, who could resist that half cocked ear?
While Cons and I tried our hands in the pocketful limestone slabs, Chris (sporting his NEMO T-shirt like any good ambassador) impressed us all with his two-finger pocket swinging techniques.
