Alpine Bouldering Guide

Alpine Bouldering Guide

Posted on 07. Dec, 2009 by in News

Well the snow has come to Boulder and it looks like everyone will be climbing indoors for a while. I have been setting with an awesome crew at Movement and it has been great fun and there are some really cool problems in there right now. The biggest news as of late is that I have been in contact with Sharp End Publishing and am in the process of writing a guidebook to the alpine bouldering in Rocky Mountain National Park and Mt. Evans. Sharp End just published a wonderful guidebook to Eldorado Canyon. I am working with proprietor Fred Knapp, and we have agreed that a guide with out the full support of the rangers and is not worth doing. My hope is that the guide will be representative of the community, will help access, and will provide accurate information. I am making every attempt to be as thorough as possible and I want this to be something the community will stand behind. This came about as many of my fellow climbers approached me, asking me to take the lead on this. The other climbers I have talked to or been in contact with have been very supportive and encouraging, including David Graham, Daniel Woods, Paul Robinson, Brian Capps, Herman Fiessner, Justin Jaeger, Angie Payne, Luke Parady, Ryan Olson, Wade David (who will be providing photos for the project), Jason Pinto, Brian Camp, Andre Difelice, Blake Rutherford, Chad Greedy, Paul Otis. The list goes on. I look forward to being in touch with many of you this winter.

    Does anyone have Brian Capps contact information that they could send to me. I went to CU with him and have been trying to reach him for quite some time now. My email is If you’re concerned about giving out his information and you in fact are in contact with him, just let him know Joe Hangge would like to climbing sometime and that he should email me.
