Climbing in Eldorado Canyon

Marc Gay at Hawk Eagle Ridge, Eldorado Canyon, Boulder ColoradoMy friend Marc is on the verge of completing a new traditional route on Hawk-Eagle Ridge in Eldorado Canyon. After many days effort, a ground fall off of a blown out TCU, and multiple falls near the final jug, he’s damn close to sending it. Not bad for a bald 42 year old with an infant son and a full-time job.

Update: Marc sent the route in July after what he thinks might have been forty days of effort. The Grim Reaper goes at 5.13b/R. Nice work Marc.

Alex and Andy on the way to the summit of Mt. Bancroft

On a perfect Colorado spring day, Andy Jensen, Alex Platt and I skied James Peak and Mt. Bancroft, two peaks in the central mountians of the front range. It was a long day, comprised mostly of skinning and suffering, but we managed a few good turns.
