Poudre Canyon

Posted on 06. Dec, 2010 by in News

I have been quite motivated as of late, and my efforts have been focused on several new undone lines in the Poudre. I always seem to enjoy heading up to Ft. Collins this time of year. The rock is great, and lately there has been a fun and motivated crew to go with. The forest there is one of the best in Colorado, and we even saw some huge lion tracks in the snow the other day. Some of the first projects to go down were right off the road. I climbed the FA of Bloc Negative V10 and Dead Moose V10 recently.

Bloc Negative adds a difficult mantel and left exit to Bloc 2 V9 on the Bloc Boulder, which is a fun stop just off the road beyond the Hatchery Boulder. Dead Moose climbs the sloping bulge right of Crusher at the 420s.

Brian Camp made the second ascent of Dead Moose and Andre Difelice almost climbed the third ascent. I guess he’ll have to make his way back up soon. The other projects are scattered around the canyon. I am confident all of these will be climbed some day. Check them out!

This is one of the best. Perfect rock and a huge move on a steep rounded bulge.

IMG_9605Ken’s Roof Sit Project, I climbed this to the lip yesterday, but was forced to hang and drop from the lip due to melting snow. Probably V11.

The new Organic hats I am wearing in a few of the photos are sick! Josh does it once again.

    Can I ask why its the “Lost in the Hood” project, when theres already a Lost in the Hood 8B+ in HCR? Is it because of that long reachy low percentage move it looks like you’re doing?

    Yeah, seems like a very similar move. Maybe Voges will come do it first.

    Yeah… I kind of worked that one out as I was writing my comment. It seems like my kind of problem though. Just need to get stronger (by… a lot). 6’7″ with a +2 ape index. GET SOME.
