Trip: Liberty Traverse and Big Kangaroo -

Date: 7/9/2017

Trip Report:
Thanks for the inspiring trip reports everyone! It is great to see this site thrive on as this great summer winds on.
Fourth of July was a 4 day weekend for my friends. My gal and I started with the Liberty Traverse. One of the great traverses in the state for sure. We purposely did it overnight for the romance.
Next my guy friends and I did the 2nd ascent of the Skinny Start to the Kearney/Thomas route on Big Kangaroo. It was a burly outing for sure with some minor epics to add interest. Info in Blakes new book, but be careful with the beta, there are more pitches than described, and didnt see the rap anchors for going down the Becky route. About as much fun as we can have on a weekend. Further musings on my online journal.

Yeah Wayne! I can't comment on the burly Big K adventure, but for sure love that you enjoyed the Liberty Traverse. It is so cool (a classic even), and infinitely scaleable for energy and ambition. The bivy option is a nice touch.

And, I feel very honored to have you link my TR on your blog!
