Saturday was a beautiful day in the Poudre Canyon. Last weekend the Front Range was inundated with snow and it was nice to have a day of gorgeous fall weather. We climbed at the Gandalf Area on some great established problems. The river was down and the sometimes epic crossing was pleasureable. It’s always a […]

Saturday I went to the Poudre Canyon to finish off Ice 9 V10. The problem is about 4 miles before the town of Rustic and 3/4 of the way to main bouldering areas in the Poudre. It’s uniqueness is its defining feature. Not only does it climb some of the slickest, river polished gniess I […]

Crossing the Cache la Poudre Sunday I went to the Poudre Canyon with a huge crew. It was a relaxing day and I had one objective, Small Axe, a classic and tall V8 on the Black Pearl. Ben Scott lead the way, graciously cleaning ice out of the top-out holds. I got warmed up and […]

Sunday was a brilliant fall day and I went to the Poudre with my good friend Brian Camp. I wanted to try to climb Canopener, which has broken several times recently. Canopener was the first V10 I ever climbed and it has a special place in my heart. The starting jug had broken off a […]

Poudre Canyon After 6 months of nonstop bouldering, I have taken the last few weeks to rest. It really feels great and the timing couldn’t be better as the alpine areas continue to get more and more snow. I have gone out a few days to snap some pictures and enjoy the company of friends. […]

Sunday I went to the Poudre Canyon with Angela. I slept in and we didn’t get up there until about 1:30. I was tired from the day before and hoped I could do one problem, the Cloudwalker crack. Dave Graham did the first ascent and underclinged his way out the massive roof. New beta has […]

Sunday I spent the entire day exploring the Poudre Canyon for more rock. I found house sized boulders, paddled across the river, walked through a giant talus field, touched immaculate rock, watched a moose, found a tick on my pants and saw nothing I would ever go back to climb on. Where are the boulders?

Saturday we loaded up the car and Angela and I went with the infamous Chad Greedy to the Poudre Canyon. It was a pleasant car ride and I was really psyched for Circadian Rhythm. I hadn’t yet had the combination of good conditions and two full rest days but today was the day. It was […]

Ft. Collins, Colorado, USA We awoke today to the shining sun. We heard rumours of 10 inches of snow in the Poudre and our hearts sunk. A few phone calls later and the word was “Rustic is dry!” We packed the truck and bolted north. It was a pleasant 2 hour drive and soon we […]
