Foreward

The following is the foreward from the forthcoming book (not thoroughly edited of course)

Welcome to the Wayne County wonderland, a land of stark contrasts, amazing beauty, empty spaces, and adventurous climbing.  Located in the south central part of the state, the area around the Fremont River drainages (Wayne County) is isolated and off the beaten track for most climbers.   Off the beaten path, on the way to nowhere, all roads lead away from here.  So needless to say, most people don’t find themselves here accidentally.

If you are looking for the convenience of Potash Road or the concentration of Indian Creek or a climbing scene, you will be  disappointed.  Make no mistake, this is backcountry adventure climbing.  Cragging, sometimes, yes. Even on established routes there is very often no approach trail, a lot of loose, soft rock, and old, manky anchors.  You may be lucky (or unlucky) to see another soul, much less beste online casino a climber.  A lot of these routes are out there.  You may easily be  doing a second or third ascent.  If you are looking for an adventurous time, are self-reliant, and enjoy the journey as much as the destination, then this might just be  up your alley.

The Fremont River is the principle artery of most of the inhabited sections of Wayne County.  Starting high in the mountains, it brings life to this arid, desolate valley.  Much like the river brings wildlife, cottonwoods, orchards, crops, and so much else life, the cliffs, canyons, buttes, boulders, and wide open empty spaces do the same for me.  This guide is my attempt to share the adventure and peacefulness of living here.  Please respect and enjoy this beautiful land.
