Paul Sends Echale

Posted on 12. Mar, 2007 by in News

Paul Robinson made the third ascent of Echale V14 in Clear Creek Canyon, outside of Golden, this weekend. Nice job Paul. Echale was put up by Daniel Woods. Unfortunately, almost every hold is chipped or glued and the entire problem was dugout with a pick axe (not by Daniel). I understand the desire to repeat the standard testpieces, however I look foward to seeing these youngsters apply their strength to natural lines in the future. I know that Paul is psyched for the Green 45 project in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is one of the hardest problems I have seen that will go, and it will certainly be newsworthy when it does. I also went back to Joe’s this weekend, had another great trip, and will have pictures and updates later today.
