News & Notes – 8/17/2011


On the day of the free ascent I stumble and fall, and generally epic before sending the crux pitch on my third try of the day. Above, I fall again, cramping and fighting wet rock on numerous sections of tricky 5.12. The rope gets pulled and I manage to put it all together for the first free ascent. I’m tired for a week.

    Hi everyone… More current info on the Rifle RendezSPEW here., we’re also trying to raise money to help us open the front half of the canyon, which is on public land but currently closed due to rules in place by the Department of Wildlife. Currently, we owe an extra $800 for a bird study we commissioned. We will be using this report when we approach the DOW with a proposal that will allow climbing to exist in areas where there are no eagle nests. We’re collection donations for this, as well as for hardware replacements, etc. Any extra donations will be appreciated.

    It should be a great time. Hope to see everyone out there.
