A cult classic from circa 2001. Tom Blackford and I shot this footage with an old Sony DV camera loaned to us by Chris Thorndike. Tam (Tom) had been shooting for awhile before I started helping out. We were motivated to show case all the new bouldering our friends had been developing in the Fort Collins area. In the end I gave myself a crash course in Final Cut pro and boom, Fort Collins first feature length bouldering video was born. We ran a half-ass premier at the Aggie Theatre and I think Tam printed about 100 VHS copies which disappeared quickly. A few years later I made a DVD version, Solutions 2.0, and burnt about 50 copies one at a time on an old G4.

People have been harassing me for a copy for years now, but I always just told them it was out of print. Hopefully people will enjoy this time capsule of Northern Colorado bouldering. Old skool, bad music, shaky cameras, low-res footage, but oh so sweet it is. Enjoy!

    The editing and music of the first 7 minutes made me feel
    like I was watching an early 90s History Channel doc about alien

    I’m pretty sure that is one that Cameron Cross put up a few years ago as a big double clutch. I don’t know the name or the grade, only that it was said to be very hard, classic, and scary. It is on the Big Oyster boulder in Poudre Canyon.
