Mt. Evans

Posted on 24. Jun, 2010 by in News

I went back to Mt. Evans after work today and it was another stellar day. The weather was clear all evening, and a cool breeze kept things pleasant. I hiked around looking for more new projects and I probably cleaned 6 new boulders. I also climbed a bit. Dave, Kevin Jorgeson and I tried Daniel’s new V13, The Great War for Civilization. It seems very hard, one of the hardest V13s I have ever tried, and Daniel thinks it could be harder. Either way it’s a great problem and super motivating to climb on. I have done all but one move. Kevin put up an amazing highball which he repeated for the camera. I think he said it was V5 or V6 and a classic line. A good day and I look forward to getting back soon!

    the oldschoolers really let themselves –and most importantly, me– down in not mentioning that there are so many good lines there despite their focus on lowball chossy turds.

    5 year curve ball swing and a miss like woah.

    those weren’t low chossy turds, they were warm-ups for the next generation. I remember going up there on around three different occasions. Each visit we would put up a handful of problems in one area then usually hike around saying “this shit is crazy, but there’s no holds.” Our combined bouldering efforts where topping out at around v7. So yes we new there was great bouldering there, but not at our level. Couple problems standout. One zone had a nice sloper (the idiot) problem in a flat area in the middle of the hillside. Eric Decaria did an overhanging hand crack off-width to the north of it, highball. The pictures on FRB did not do any help in demystifying the”low ball choss turds” comment. Although nice nostalgia. And if your all nice maybe well throw you a bone next time.

    Kevin, thanks for adding some history. I knew people had bouldered here for a while, but there are also a bunch of very obvious steep hard lines that seemed undone. It’s a beautiful area and just another place for some hard bouldering to be done.

    murph! i must know all of your secrets of untapped blocks.

    let’s start here: please let me know of all areas with quality FA potential that are less than 10 minutes from parker colorado, bomber stone, interesting moves, and stay at a consistent 50 degrees at all times of the year and have a bell curve apexing at v7/8


    OH, and no ticks. ever.

[…] Und um in diesem Gebiet zu bleiben und die Überschrift zu bestätigen: Daniel Woods konnte in der Lincoln Area Evil Backwards (8B+?) erstbegehen und einen Tag zuvor das — bis dato — schwerste, von Dave entdeckte, Problem klettern: The great war for civilisation. Kevin Jorgeson hat einen — für seine Verhältnisse — leichten Highball (7A/+/V6-V7) gemacht, wobei einer seiner Highballs für den Ottonormal-Bürger als Route einchecken dürfte.
