This day on Cannon was different. I was being guided with Ken by MMG Guide Matt Ritter. You see Matt is getting prepped for his Rock Instructor Exam and he is looking for mileage on a variety of routes. Ken and I teamed up for a two to one ratio on a Cannon Classic – The Whitney Gilman Ridge.

In this role I was able to take a few different photos from below.  What a great day, the team, the weather and no crowds. As you can see Cannon is a great place to be during the fall climbing season.

Suns out guns out.

The crux pitch.

Cannon one of my favorite climbing areas for sure.

Thanks to Ken and Matt for a great day.
