Moab, Utah. The ups and downs and a Hard Decision

Cath and my time in Utah has definitely been a time of ups and downs.
Unfortunately Cath did not completely recover from her surgery earlier in the trip, as expected, and continues to be unwell with something that the doctors here don’t seem to be able to resolve, This has resulted in only a few days climbing for her over this time and the eventual very hard decision for both of us.
Cath headed home a few days ago to recover properly and see doctors in a familiar environment.
I am already missing her on this adventure we planned for so long together, but we are still hopeful she will be able to return in the not to distant future to resume our adventures.
As usual we have again been fortunate to be with amazing friends while in Utah, Eric and Dre who guided us around when we first got to Moab and the Steven and Carrie who let us stay with them making Cath’s time there much easier.
And Michael for hanging out with us and dragging me up some super sandbagged routes.

But not all things were bad in Utah we saw some amazing scenery and Cath and I got to climb the amazing Fine Jade 5.11a 5 pitches on the Rectory in Caselton Valley. Plus catching up with old and new friend is always awesome.

Here are some photo highlights from our time in Moab.
