Pictures from the climbing part of a day spent with Brad & Jennifer at Drive In Theater in Montana.

March 2019, a great day of climbing for the Erics (Harris & Casazza)


In late December 2018, Eric took a great climbing trip to Red Rocks Canyon
in Nevada with Eric & Kristin Harris.  Thank you Eric & Kristin for the wonderful pictures! 





You can always tell when Eric has been climbing with
Scott, we get some great photos out of the deal! 
These are from September 2018.

Here is another beautiful shot by our friend Scott on a good climbing day in the Wichitas, January 2018

Eric, doing what he loves best

This is one of Eric's favorite pictures.  That's him on the left, and the shot includes 3 of the best climbing areas in the Wichita Mountains.  Thanks Scott for the great photos! 



The following four shots are scenes from a recent trip to Fern, AR.  This is Eric getting a first ascent on "Zero to Hero", belay by Jerry Barnett.


Photo credits and a big shout out goes to Kraig Koroleski, Eric's climbing buddy and friend.

I like to tease Eric that the most authentic  smiles he gives are seen during climbing trips.  
Am I right or what?!  

In Montana, there's an area called Point of Rocks
that is being developed, including a nice new guidebook.
Eric has enjoyed checking it out this summer.

Here is a link to some pictures taken there on a day
when we accompanied a group of students on a climbing trip.


One of Eric's new favorite climbing spots is in
Fern, Arkansas - being developed by his friend
Jerry Barnett.

Here is a YouTube Video of a recent trip there
taken by our friend Michael Gu.

Eric can be found at the bottom of the 
Photo Gallery on the FernClimbing.com site
