I had a great session at Mt. Evans on Saturday. A huge crew was there and the conditions were good. A group of Southerners including Jon Glassberg, Jimmy Webb, Nate Draughn and Brion Voges climbed several classics, but local boy Paul Robinson earned the employee of the day with his send of The Big Worm V14. I added a nice variation to Bierstadt which starts about 5 ft to the left on a right hand pinch and a left hand edge. I named it after one of my favorite artists, Banksy, in keeping with a theme Ben Scott started so many years ago. Here are some pics from the day.

I also tried a very nice project, which is in the V12 or V13 range, and scoped out an old project from the early days. When completed, this will be the best problem at Mt. Evans.

    Im coming out to colorado next month with some friends.Im looking to break through my plateau and send something of a new grade around v8/9. Me being a stencil artist, it sounds like the banksy problem would fit perfectly, but we may not be able to make it out to mt.evans and I was wondering if you know of any classic 8-9s in lower-upper chaos that would be good??

    when i first was working bierstadt, i was irritated by the first big move, which for me was the crux at the time…. so i started with right hand on horizontal crimp next to normal jug and left hand on fat pinch with a left foot jacked up retarded style high. the first move was a semi windmill swat w/ left hand to sidepull. i call this problem: “better than jamie’s wildest dreams… in watercolor”

    bow to me.
