Climbing in the San Rafael Swell / by Sarah Robertson

The San Rafael Swell is a giant geological wonder full of climbing, canyons, pictographs and petroglyphs, and countless other wonders. This trip was primarily focused on climbing and a little camping. I wasn’t much of a climber back then (we took this trip in 2015). I decided to take the backseat to most of the actual climbing, just spent a nice relaxing afternoon photographing some fun climbers. Some of my favorite subject matter consists of rock climbers and their gear. Nearly every climber I have come in contact with is a good soul. Genuine people who just truly love spending time out in nature. I like being around people like that; it always inspires me to spend more time out experiencing the outdoors. [Shot on Portra 400 taken with a Mamiya 645]
