Recently Dave Graham went to Red Rocks and made the second ascent of the stunning Meadowlark Lemon V15, first climbed by Paul Robinson in 2012. This is a beautiful problem, and I have much respect for Paul’s efforts. Dave also climbed a number of classics in the area, including Wet Dream V12 FA Ethan Pringle (which is considered by most to be one of the best problems in the country), Abaddon V12 FA Pete Lowe, and Atlas Shrugged V12 FA Jon Cardwell My friend Cameron Maier an produced an excellent little video about their trip. This is exactly the kind of media I love to see; creative, thoughtful and interesting footage of one of the best climbers in the country on one of the most amazing and independent lines in America. It also shows uncut footage of the actual ascent, with plenty of clips thrown in to see the holds and rock. Well done.
Check out the footage on The Island.
Another video which caught my attention recently was this stunner from Ireland. Great to hear from international climbers in places that aren’t traditionally considered bouldering destinations.
