News & Notes – 7/30/2007

  • Paul Robinson is back from his trip to California with Daniel Woods. I would have to believe he is a little bit disappointed he did not send problems like Black Mamba (V13) or Somewhere in Time (V13) like Mr. Woods did, but it sounded like a great trip nonetheless.
  • If you didn’t see it in the comments, Justin Jaeger has the video of Kelly McBride climbing the Kind Traverse ready. She makes it look pretty easy.
  • Speaking of strong women, Laura Griffiths sent her own V11 this past weekend when she made the 3rd ascent of Adamantium Sit Start at Black Mountain in only 1 day of work. In her recent trip to Socal she has also done 2 V10’s, 4 V9’s and 2 V8’s.
  • Five Ten shoes will be featured on the History channel program “Modern Marvels” tonight at 8 p.m. EST. Take that all you La Sport wearing punters…
  • Andre DeFelice must not need much time to rest. In the past week alone he has done 4 V9’s, 1 V11 and 1 V12 in RMNP. Mixed in there he managed to make the drive up to the Wild Iris outside of Lander, WY and send his first 5.14a Throwin’ the Houlian.
  • Ryan “Future” Roden is a guy (not really a kid anymore) I’ve seen around the youth climbing circuit for a few years and he only seems to be getting stronger. In the past month or so he has really gotten into form by sending 3 5.14a’s, 2 .13d’s and 3 .13c’s. I would expect to hear a lot more about him in the future.
