Jade Video

I have returned safely from Las Vegas with both my marriage and my finances still intact so it was a successful trip. While I sort things out, be sure to check out this video of Daniel Woods doing the first ascent of Jade (V15). [youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=SpfIEes3lnw] I for one am psyched that they decided to show […]

How’d It Feel?

How’s this for a 3rd day on circuit at The Park:  Handy Capps (V9), Centaur (V12), The Automator (V13) x2?, Tommy’s Arete (V7), Aslan (V14)?  Notice the sick lock-off strength exhibited on that crux move of The Centaur/Aslan…sick!

News & Notes – 6/25/2007

Traversing The Park

Freaks of the Industry at RMNP, CO was first climbed by James Litz in 2003 and has been repeated several times. Is it V13 or V14? I guess that depends on who you ask. Either way, it is a sick problem. Below is video of Ty Landman dispatching it in only a couple days of […]

DWS Method

A couple of months back Paul Robinson made the FA of a rad problem called A Wrinkle In Time (V11) at Joe’s Valley, UT. It is named as such because it ascends the boulder above a rather large river. Paul just barely pulled off the FA as the ice was melting beneath him. Presumably and […]

News & Notes – 5/14/2007

Big news of last week was Daniel Woods making the 2nd ascent of Suspension of Disbelief (V13 or V14) at Eldorado Canyon, CO. Dave Graham called it V13 but Daniel felt it was harder than any V14 he had done so he proposed upgrading it to V14. Ethan Pringle did the first ascent of Jumbo […]
