Word on the street has it that, thanks to a visiting Japanese climber, the classic V10 Canopener in Poudre Canyon, CO had its likely first ascent Saturday since a key start hold broke off. Apparently without this key hold the grade of the problem might be bumped up a grade or two. Sorry Sock Hands…
Here is some video of Jamie Emerson climbing Canopener last year…first you have to sit through footage of him climbing Circadian Rhythm (V13) though.
Thanks to the reader that sent this in!
