Friday I made it back to Moraine Park in RMNP to try my project, Both Sides of the Spectrum V12. Here’s a little background on the line: Both Sides of the Spectrum was put up by former CU student Harry Roberston in 2007. It has been previously dubbed the Karma Project, for its similarity to [...]

Wild Basin is slowly becoming one of the most popular bouldering destinations in Colorado. The relatively quick approach, short hike, and excellent quality boulder problems make it an appealing destination, particularly as the weather has finally cooled off here in Boulder and the leaves are brilliantly gold. Today was a quick session but it was [...]

The last few times I’ve gotten out I’ve continued my never-ending hunt for amazing new boulders. While I do have many fond memories of Mt. Evans, the rock in the Park is so much better that it is hard for me to justify going south. Evans has always been a step below in my mind, [...]

Warning: Graphic content of a cut below This weekend I made it back to Upper Upper Chaos Canyon, the place of most potential and the best rock in the Front Range for new and amazing hard problems. Jimmy Webb was psyched to get out, and he got in touch with me to go on the [...]

Daniel Woods has made the FA of new potential 8C in RMNP. Very well done! The problem climbs a gorgeous and singular line out a massive roof that sits hidden just off the Bear Lake Road on exceptional swirling granite. The problem begins with difficult tension climbing that culminates in a very hard crux move. [...]

This weekend I was feeling a bit under the weather, but it wasn’t enough to stop from getting out to scope a “new area” practically in Estes Park. The reality is that the Nicky’s Boulders (aka The Billards) have been climbed at for a long time. In fact I visited the area in 2002 when [...]

Saturday I went to Upper with Jaeger and Rylan with one goal in mind, finishing the low start to Mirkwood, which Phil Schaall had done the first ascent of last week. I managed the third ascent on Saturday after a bit of work, and I think this is an awesome new problem. Jaeger made an [...]
