Colorado Visit


The Hike into Evans is so beautiful and soft in terms of Colorado Alpine approach. We(tina and I) arrived at the airport around 11am and by 2pm we were at the area. Met up with Big Kevin Brown(owner of Denver Bouldering Club)long time friend......... Alison(freelance lawyer) and Kevin Perrone(healed the neck) and Scott and quickly I felt all the stress of the east coast go to the corner of my busy mind. After having not been outside climbing for a year and a half(ouch) this was a treat. I had alot of goals 2 years prior in Colorado and knew that I wasnt in that kinda shape yet but still wanted to reconnect with these projects and areas.
Good friends

Mirror Mask v10
Mirror Mask is the stand start to Big Wormv14. This thing is so good .....big holds, big moves...heel hooks...yerp. BTW Nate did the mad props to him. Big Kev and I were very excited about the stand(minus the ending...rock in way kinda). We both got close but no send......going back in july to finish her off.
Mirror Mask v10
Kevin got very close and had the first part dialed in and I thought for sure he was going to do it right then and there...this would be his first v10(I think)...way phyched for him as he has gotten very strong and looking fit. As I sit here typing Im sure he is working it proper. Cant wait to get back there in july and also hit up RMNP as it was snowed in on this trip ...arrrgggghh!!!
