Today I ran out of work at 3pm and went straight up to Upper Chaos. It takes a good effort to make it up there as fast as possible. I had my sights set on a nice problem to the left of Riddles in the Park. I think this has been done from a high […]

Sunday Angie and I were back up to the Park. I am really excited about the idea of hiking just a bit further and putting up some new problems. 10 years ago it seemed silly to hike 2 miles to go bouldering. One way bouldering can progress in Colorado is to hike. It really is […]

Saturday I had a great session with good friends. I was psyched to try and put up some new problems. First off was a low start to the Toolshed V7 or V8. This boulder is found up-canyon from Sunspot, south of Eternia. It is a polished red overhang with brilliant yellow lichen that faces up […]

The Park seems to be the destination of choice these days although I have no particular projects or objectives. The snow is much deeper this year than last and many classics are still buried including Sunspot, Bushpilot, Potato Chip and Riddles in the Park (although this was recently dug out). The top of Bushpilot Its […]

Saturday, Justin Jaeger snapped some great photos of The Power of Ten V12. Check them out. Justin has been climbing very well lately, sending Silverback V10, Stinkbug V10 and the Kind Traverse V11 in the last few weeks. He also climbed just about every variation on the Stinkbug Boulder. Justin’s infectious motivation and dedication to […]

Yesterday I went up to Stinkbug and finished off The Power of Ten V12. The wind was blowing hard and our session was almost ended by an abrupt snowstorm. Justin Jaeger crushed Stinkbug. This is the first hard problem I have climbed since taking almost three weeks off. In a week I leave for the […]

Today after work my friend Vitaly and I drove up to Stinkbug a classic V10 for a nice evening session. It was put up by Tommy Caldwell and was originally named Lonestar. I didn’t find this out for several years and I still refer to it as Stinkbug. I had done this problem in the […]

Today was a great day and Rolson, Brian Camp and I went up to the Park and we all climbed Veritas V11 from the sit start. This is an outstanding problem on good rock. It is one of the more proud lines in Colorado and very much not my style. I had tried it a […]

Yesterday I went to Moraine Park with Olson and Angela. We met up briefly with Seth Allred and Chad Greedy and then later with Matt Tschol and Andre DeFelice. Moraine Park is also known as Arch Rocks. It is a mile hike from the Fern Lake Trail head on a flat trail along a gorgeous […]

This fall I have scraped my previous plans due to lack of time outside. I have decided to put all of my effort into the Automator V13. The Automator was put up in 2000 by Dave Graham. It has 11 ascents to my knowledge. The crux move revolves around a very hard move off of […]
