Jeremiah Watt Picks a Rocktober Gallery from City of Rocks
Posted on October 30, 2015

Sunrise in the City.

Jeremiah Watt has captured a solid stack of iconic images from the heart of climbing culture for editorial outlets and core, outdoor brands. Each time he signs on for one of our trips we are both very honored and super keen to see what shots land back at headquarters. On our latest mission we sent Watt on a family climbing trip to a zone that is one of his all-time favorites—City of Rocks, Idaho—with guides Erik Leidecker, David Morton and Jake Norton. We encouraged them all to bring their climbing families. Then we asked Watt to pick out a few of his favorites that captured the essence of the place and the trip. We were not disappointed.  —LYA Editor
