Summer Roadtrip: Coopers Rock, West Virginia

A couple days drive east takes us to our next destination, Coopers Rock in West Virginia. Coopers is a place that we climbed at often back when we lived in Pittsburgh. Paul LEARNED how to climb at Coopers! Neither of us had been here since we moved out west, 13 years ago. It was quite a treat checking out our old stompin’ grounds and showing the kids around. We met up with our long-time climbing buddies that still live in the east, making it all the more special. And even the weather cooperated with dry, mild days! A good time was had by all.

Paul gets his one shot in a lifetime to send Tomb Raider Roof, v7, because it’s ALWAYS dipping wet!! But not today. 🙂

Paul sends. I do not.



The kids abandon the teepee and build a log cabin instead, complete with flower garden
