We headed up to Beaver Valley to climb over the past month, but we have to admit, bugs were pretty intense. Some of us got out to The Swamp before the mayhem, and enjoyed some great climbing at The Swamp with the help of our guidebook. Thanks Sarah for the great shots! Of course, of all the Beaver Valley locations, The Swamp gets the most bugs due to its secluded location and dense foliage.
Guidebook contributor Leslie Timms got in the thick of it, and getting some new sends up north with friends.
