RMNP Trip Update

Our trip out west is going very well so far. We are in RMNP right now and it has been cool to see everything that is going on out here.

Apparently the ever-humble Tommy Caldwell repeated Freaks Of The Industry (V13) the other day, once again proving his all-around game. A couple of others were getting close on Freaks today as well. The cameras of one Chuck Fryberger were rolling so look for footage from him if anyone did send.

It has been a bad week for stashed pads with reports of several being carried out by rangers just the other day. It has definitely been interesting to see this issue up close to say the least.

I had the pleasure of hanging out with Paul Robinson yesterday while he worked on a sick project in Upper Chaos. It was a pretty cool experience to spend the afternoon with one of the world’s strongest (and nicest) boulderers. I’ll have some pictures from the project when we get home. He was fairly close to figuring out the crux first move today, so it may not even be a project by the time I post them. We will see.

Today we will be heading up to Chaos again to do some climbing of our own as well as to watch a few of the “strongmos” at work. Many more updates when we return home in a few days.

    Congratulations to the rangers! Hopefully the message will be received by boulderers in the Park and elsewhere.

    venker is the one who established some hard link ups out in bishop during last years snowy season. He has pictures on his card. tSean McColl suggested that due to the incredibly fragile nature of one of these problems’ top out he doubts that it was ever climbed…

    I don’t believe I met Eric at all. Very impressive efforts.

    Campusmang – I stole strongmo from socktard so take it up with him

    I think the project you saw Paul on was climbed by Tyler Landman and is called Top Notch V13
