Well today was my last day here in Colorado. Tomorrow I am heading home to chattanooga. Time to step it up on the training game, get stronger, and return to CO ASAP!

Here's a clip I threw together of a couple problems I was able to climb in Boulder Canyon. Thanks to John Gass for the filming!

Fantasia Video

So here's a cool clip my buddy John Gass threw together of me climbing the 2nd ascent of Daniel Woods Fantasia, v14.
This climb is ultra mega.. and the setting, the movement, and overall value of this bloc speaks for itself. Simply an incredible boulder problem!

Thanks John!

Shades crest bouldering 2011

So, I just got word in from Adam Henry that this coming weekend will be the 2011 Shades Crest Bouldering Competition. I attended this event last year, and it was for sure a sick time. Amazing problems, chill environment, and brews all round. Wish I could be there this year!

For those of you who choose to attend ( which you should ) I hope you Enjoi

New 8a in Dayton

Location: Dayton Pocket

Crew: Hugh Huffaker, Rami Annab, Aj Hanson, Andrew Kornylak, Brion Voges

Goal: Roof project on the river, just past western gold.

Today was a sick day, as we got to climb on a very cool roof project at Dayton. At first glance this problem looked reeeally hard. The crux moves revolved around awkward movements on slopey crimps, hanging off a good heel like it's your job, deadpointing to a small 3 finger pocket, and making a large toss to a 2 pad jug. Once crucial beta was refined and the subtleties were figured out, I was able to climb the boulder for its First Ascent. For those of you looking for a new hard boulder to get the psyche up, this one should be close to the top of your list!

Problem completed: Foundation, v11
