January 2013 - Bambi Roof, Red Rocks

After a nice trip back to the Southeast over the Christmas holiday, its back to the daily here in Denver. Almost a full month into the New Year and I gotta say I am pretty jazzed up about 2013. Work at the climbing gym has been great. I can't express how nice it is to walk into an atmosphere where everybody is psyched; the staff, the climbers - the general attitude of everyone there is great.

I also have been back at my project in Matthew-Winters Park which has become EPIC.
Falling at the pocket move, falling off the second move and the third move and the fifth move. WHY is bouldering so difficult. 

Concentrate, focus. Conditions are good, could be better. Stop. Focus. Breathe. Everything you got.
It will only come down to one or two minutes on one day. Then it will end, and the search will continue!

Aside from the usual I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to head out to Red Rocks with the DBC crew this past weekend. Like a mix between Hueco Tanks and Joe's Valley, the amount of sandstone boulders seems to be limitless. We climbed a lot of cool problems and made plans for a return trip in two weeks to finish off a few that were left undone.

Here is a video of some of the problems we climbed ...
