Border Monument 229 12/13/2021
Parking by a quarry.
It is a rocky road to the border.
Rough walls around us.
This looks easy to start up.
Wit is taking the canyon, later he will turn back.
Got on a ridge, so far so good.
The steepness starts.
It will get rougher.
Mostly on all fours.
East side border wall.
One of the bumps.
Not sure about the next bump. We may go around it.
Rocks are loose.
There is Mexico.
We are almost up.
Made it. It is time for yesterday’s pizza.
Our group here.
We are taking the right side ridge down…
Since the left side leads into Mexico. That was not a problem before the wall.
Slow but safe going.
Made it down.
Welcome to America, land of free food, drinks, shirts, hats, socks etc.
Not much activity here.
Can we climb it?
For who are these signs?
We are going anyway.
Wit found us on the new access road.
He knows the easy way back.
Wit also brought this with him. Achtung, it will explode!
Found this nice rope that may have been used for wall climbing. Anyway girls won (as allways)!
