Climbing Beers

Then it was off to the Cascades! Jack, Sean, and I packed up the car and drove about three hours into the mountains.

The area that we climbed in was a town over from the areas with forest fires. We had a lot of smoke blowing up the valley. You could easily see it in the air and so I took less pictures than I would have normally because the neighboring peaks looked fuzzy and less crisp.

But the climbs were awesome and stunning.

Everyday was a new adventure. The first day we climbed the peak right behind me in this picture.
To get to the climbs it was a two and a half hour approach. So by day three we were a bit worn out, we had a slower day and climbed at a closer crag later in the afternoon.
I had a Deschutes Black Butte Porter.

We later headed into the closest small town and happened to find a brewery!

The Old Schoolhouse Brewery.

Pardon the non made up face, I had just had my first shower in three days.
While enjoying the feeling of being clean I sipped on the Rendezvous Porter.
Once our adventures in the mountains were over, we made our way back to Seattle for a few days.
