Poudre Canyon

Posted on 10. Jan, 2011 by in News

The Poudre Canyon is the best place in Colorado for new hard problems. Friday I took Daniel Woods there to scope some of them out, and to try to get some fitness back after a restful Christmas break. The boulders were mostly covered in snow and it was cold, but we gave some good efforts on two of the lines, the Pinch Project and the Red October Project. It seems the Pinch project maybe reachy, but it felt possible, and Daniel and Brian Camp gave good efforts on it as well.

The cold was a bit much, and we moved over to Critical Mass, a V12 roof put up by Andre Difelice. I fell off the end and Daniel made quick work of the low roof.

It’s a nice project to have to build some fitness, although the cold weather looks as though it may be here to stay. Fortunately, I have beta on a potentially good new area, which I will be traveling to this weekend…more to come.
