Navajolands – A Week On The Rez

In early April, I spent a week down on the Navajo Reservation spanning the border of New Mexico and Arizona. We (myself and a couple of friends from Colorado) climbed 6 towers in 7 days.

This trip was all about the unknown. Before hand, we weren't really sure what was going to happen and actually being able to climb wasn't even a given. However, we did know that whatever happened, it was going to be an adventure and so the trip was dubbed Operation F*ck Ya (OFY).

The weeks' worth of climbing flew by with lots of wind, sand, and even sandy wind. We met some wonderful local Dineh climbers who brought us into their homes and helped secure permission for these sacred summits. While I mostly shot photos, I did try to take a few video clips to create this 'journal' of our trip - a trip that I shall not forget anytime soon!

I'm fairly certain that I speak for all of us when I say, I look forward to reconnecting with our Dineh companions for OFY2 next year...

    That was AWESOME! I loved every second of it, the time lapse, the sketchy hardware, choss, grime, and rope clusterF***s… it was perfectly shot!
