First few days in the Western States

So we've been in Joe's Valley now for 3 days. Today is our much needed rest day, and we're chillin at the library studyin up on classic lines hidden up in the hills close by. Our climbing days thus far have left us syked and anxious!

On our first day Brion and I climbed the Ghost King V10, I then climbed the Porn King v10, and Nate was able to make a sick ascent of Resident Evil, V9.

On our second day Brion and I climbed Big Joe Left V11, and I made a quick ascent of The Low Left Worm Turns, v12. Also Nate flashed the super classic Wills a Fire, V6.

We're unsure on how many days we have left here. Tomorrow looks a bit warm, and saturday looks absolutely incredible up in Poudre Canyon.. sooo what to do?

Also on another note I am proud to announce that i was able to make the 3rd ascent of Suspension of Disbelief V13! We drove around 26 hours to Co, and upon our arrival the syke began to build high. We quickly got in touch with Carlo, and he and Ryan Sylven took us up to Eldorado Canyon for a quick tour. Suspension is by FAR the. best. boulder i've ever climbed, and im really syked to have climbed it. I also would like to note that my ascent was ground up. Why anyone would toprope this boulder i dunno? The line is only somewhat tall, and the landing is decent, although the possibility of blowing the last move dyno could produce some major consequences. Either way, really syked!

Also Carlo was super close on the day of my ascent, and so i was really syked to hear that he went back and finished it off with style! Dudes damn strong! So who knows whats next for him? Jade?! We'll see..
