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

 

Scott, Clara, and Eric on a fun day of climbing in the Wichitas

 

 

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

 This might be where he pulled his hamstring.
That took about a month to heal!
