We can always find something to climb, even on our non-climbing desert adventures. Jonny starting up the fixed ropes.
In McElvoy Canyon in the Saline Valley in Death Valley. Lots of lush vegetation, with beautiful waterfalls, and crystal clear creeks this time of year in McElvoy Canyon. There were old, ratty fixed ropes to ascend the steeper sections of the canyon. I highly recommend this hike if you're in the Saline Valley.
