Even More Photos from Our Sonoma Coast Climbing Trip

It was a great trip and I got so many great photos out of it, not all of them involving rock climbing.

When we weren't out in search of bouldering spots (like Sunset, Secret Spot, and Fort Ross), we spent a lot of time around our campsite at Stillwater Cove. It's a short walk down to the beach, where we spent a few evenings hanging out and yes we did do a little climbing as well. There's also a really pretty loop that goes up and down this little creek. I really love how the coast just has a little bit of everything.

I'm so glad Deon was able to make it out. His enthusiasm and energy were awesome to have on the trip. As you can tell, he was up for anything. It was also really fun getting to watch his reaction and be a part of his first trip to the ocean, as well as his first time climbing outdoors. 

Crash pads are definitely a good idea...

We had two days of this mist and fog. It even escalated to thunder and lightning as well. Luckily it didn't settle too badly on the rock and we were able to still have some fun. Made for some interesting photos I think as well.
