Boulder represented very well with 4 of the top 5 in the mens and the Womens Champion. Congrats to Alex Puccio on her contiunued success as well as Paul Robinson and Ryan Olson who stepped up his game. This weekend was very chill for me. I went to the Poudre on Sat. and did on old thing I had tried called Twilight SDS V10/11. Clayton Reagan did the FA in 2004 as I recall. I had tried it one day last spring. We crossed the river and of course I fell in. It got dark quickly and the head lamps and lanterns came out. It took me a while to clean off the top. I reclimbed the crux moves and then sent it second try from the start. We hiked out in the dark shuffling four huge pads across the icy, knee deep river. I have one more week of work and then I am off to the Red River Gorge to finish off on old project and then back home for Thanksgiving. After that I leave with Brian Capps for almost 4 weeks in New England. We will be headed to Pawtuckaway, Rumney, GB, The Hideaway and anywhere else people will show us. Some of the problems I look forward to seeing are Child of the Storm, The Fly, Something From Nothing, Brothers Keeper etc etc.

New update. Boulder local Ty Landman has made quick work of The Swarm V13 or V14 in Bishop. He also finished off Direction V13 and Xavier’s Roof V12/13, a new problem put up by Tony Lamich. Nicely done. Ty is only there for a quick four day weekend.

    i would definatly do speed of life its probubly the coolest problem i have seen in the east. its a big 25 foot tall perfect 45 degree wall with another boulder as a landing that also has great problems. this is at farley. its ultra classic.

    Jamie-you doing climbing @ grand ledge while you’re home? It would be sweet to meet ya there and pick your brain on lines…Adam clues me in when he’s around, Dave’s memory seems to be a little fuzzy and Michael…well you know michael. Either way, you’re an inspiration and keep on truckin.
