RMNP

Posted on 11. Nov, 2010 by in News

Monday I went to the Park to a take a couple of pictures for the guidebook, which I have been diligently working on these past few weeks. I climbed Hi Fi V11 (FA Harry Roberston), a problem I had tried on a somewhat unfocused day earlier in the year. Based on the weather forecast, this was probably the last good day for climbing in the alpine realm, unless someone has some serious motivation, which is always a possibility. I was alone, and didn’t take any pictures of myself climbing, but there was some photographic evidence of my day up there. This was my 35th day this year at either Upper, Lower, or Emerald, which is down (because of the re-discovery of Lincoln Lake this year) from my typical 60 or so. I have made the very conservative estimate that I have spent over 400 days bouldering in RMNP in the last 10 years, and if I were more liberal it could be 500. It was a fairly uneventful year climbing wise for me in RMNP, although I did do all the moves on Jade the day I went up and tried it. That certainly provides motivation for the spring. The seasons always bring us a fresh new rotation of problems, projects and areas to visit and I am looking forward to a bunch of things for the winter, including trips to Joe’s, possibly Red Rocks, Newlin Creek, Red Feather, and Wyoming. For now, my goal is to finish the guidebook!

    Wyoming? Did I read that correctly?
    That would be great to see you back up here some time! From Laramie to Cody there a ton of good things to try up here.

    I didn’t have head phones on? So nothing, but if I were listening to something right now it would be Lightning Bolt.
