Sunday

Posted on 27. Feb, 2007 by in Poudre Canyon

Ben Scott and Angie and I went to the Poudre to check out some new projects and an old unrepeated Clayton Reagan problem called Twilight V11. The first place we stopped was this amazing project that Ben found. It took us a while to get across the river and only then after a sketchy rock hop.

The project is a beautiful 50 degree wall with amazing incut crimps, right down by the river. A perfect riverbed landing. Total Swiss style. I tried it really hard for about two hours and I did two of the 6 moves. It is really really hard. I think it would be safe to say it is in the 8C range. I am 100% confident that someone will climb it someday, but only at a very high level. It is so cool to come across something like this, that is, in a way, the future. It’s very exciting. Here are some pictures:

We then went up the road a bit to play on Twilight, a really cool problem at the base of an intimidating wall. Ben slipped on the ice and slid 50ft! right into the river. He got totally soaked but of course shrugged his shoulders and continued on. It took me a while to figure out the beta but I couldn’t quite put it together. Actually on my best go I got to the top out but couldnt rock over because 1. It’s really scary and 2. It’s even scarier when it hasnt been cleaned in two years and its covered in ice and moss. I am psyched to go back. Angela got really close to the stand start, which is probably really hard V9. Check it out:

    Sounds like a great day Jamie. It’s been a long winter with no Poudre for me since November. Can’t wait to get up there in the next week or two.
