Area D.

Today I woke up early and headed up to Mt. Evans with Voges. The plan was to walk down to Area D and try a few problems before any bad weather set in. We got a little over an hour of climbing in.

Deep Puddle

Here is a quick video of me climbing a classic in Lower Chaos:

RMNP & Mt. Evans

The past few days have been spent walking around the mountains. Tuesday I headed up to RMNP with Brion despite the possibility of bad weather. After a quick warm-up I was able to finish off an old project, Deep Puddle Dynamics. The rest of the day was spent climbing on wet holds on the Bush Pilot boulder.

Yesterday we headed to Mt. Evans to climb at Lincoln Lake. I was able to repeat an established boulder called Chalk on Rock. Cool climb. Sharp holds. Voges went to battle on The Great War for Civilisation.

On the way out we decided to check out Laying in Wait, an awesome slab climb. Brion was able to make quick work.

Summer heat!

another rest day. from John Gass on Vimeo.

Things have been a bit slow around here lately. Getting out to the boulders as often as possible, but for now the heat has kept me inside. Was able to do a few climbs at Lincoln the other day.

Hidden Gem (7b+) and The Fin Thing (7c).

That's all for now.
