With time at premium once again as my Calc III class swings into full gear, I raced out of work today and headed up to a “project” I’ve tried off and on for a year or so, Carefully By Hand V12, at Elkland. I watched Daniel Woods climb the FA a year or so ago [...]

Both days I went to check out a new sector of Nicky’s Boulders also known as Elkland, although referring to it as the Nicky’s Boulders is also technically incorrect. Tommy Caldwell, who [...]

Daniel Woods has made the FA of a sick new V14 called Mind to Motion at the Nicky’s Boulders, just outside of Estes Park, CO. The problem was found and cleaned by Dave Graham, but left open as he is in Hueco Tanks. Daniel put a few days of work into this one, and it [...]
