RollGlobal’s Ultimate Sport Climbing Road Trip
So many climbers dream of doing it – packing up the van and heading out to spend the summer climbing out the country. The states have a lot of fun and diverse climbing to offer and almost everywhere you turn there’s a new style of rock to try (except in Florida).
Last summer we loaded up the truck and lived the dream. Returning from a year-long around the world trip climbing on three different continents we were stoked to see what lay in our proverbial and very large backyard in the states.
I am happy to say that so much of the climbing was fantastic. If you look at our map you can see whole regions we missed like, well, all of California. We live in California and have already been to many places so this road trip focused on the far-reaching corners of the country.
Mostly we had our eyes on the Red River Gorge in Kentucky and made some stops along the way. On the way home we hit some standout routes in Horseshoe Canyon, Arkansas and absolutely fell in love with Wyoming. Ten Sleep, I miss you!
