Did a quick overnight north of Little Blair Valley with my son. This was just a last minute trip to try out some new gear and enjoy the cooler nighttime temps. Parked at the Pictograph trail and went searching for a decent camp site. A mile or so north of the pictograph trail end there are some decent spots and lots of boulders to explore. Found some really large 'caves' and one could spend many hours bouldering and exploring this area. In the morning we came down a canyon and made the short trip back to the car. Weather was great. 80F daytime, 37F low. No wind at night and a full moon. Camo tent is a Zpacks Duplex. 21oz.





One of the many 'caves' we found.


Another much larger-this was much larger than it appears. Could fit 10+ people standing up in here.


Morteros near the camp site.







Old Folders can found in cave


Canyon we made or way down in the morning.


Was a fun quick trip.

I took my son to that same cave and area when he was about 17, lots of cool shelters around there.
So is that Dyneema camo? I bought several yards of that thin stuff and haven't made anything yet with it, kinda a tricky fabric to work with.
