Red Feather

Posted on 01. May, 2007 by in Red Feather Lakes

Saturday I went to Red Feather with Ben Scott and Ang. to try the sport route. It has been such a nice change of pace. I have been having so much fun trying to relearn how to climb on lead. It is a very pretty overhang. I got through the crux once but fell on the upper moves. It remains a project. Here are some pics of Ben and I working the moves.

Afterwards we went to the Poudre and I did the third ascent of One Arm Scissor V10, which is right of Harder They Come V9 at the Gandolf area. The only redeeming quality of this problem was that I did a move which I had never done before. Left foot upside down toe cam and right leg flagging underneath providing push. Ian Powell would be proud.
We tried to get back to Twilight with Olson and Chris Craft which involved a ridiculous river crossing and of course the holds were soaking wet.
