Front Range bouldering success and a return to the norm. Well, my time in Colorado is up, as is my spring break. I'll be heading home in a few hours to 80 degree weather and a 10 hour day in class tomorrow. The last few days here have been really fun. I was able to climb a bunch of really nice boulders including Fantasia (v13) - an amazing, techy 20 move roof climb - and Suspension of Disbelief (v13). I climbed the stand start to Suspension of Disbelief last year but wasn't able to get back for the sit start.

 

Climbing the boulder from the bottom was my primary goal for the trip and finishing it really justified the trip to me. The boys and I have also been busy filming and editing a front range bouldering short. We have a total of 10 boulders v10 and up for 16 minutes of nonstop action. Be on the lookout for it soon. For the next few months I'm going to be laying low, training, and trying to climb some routes. It's been about 4 years since I have really tried hard on a rope and I'm looking forward to getting back into it. Ronnie Jenkins and I are planning on heading to the New River Rendezvous in May and I would really like to climb a route as Summersville Lake called Still Life 5.14b. Then it will be back to CO and back to bouldering.

I hope everyone has a great spring,

Brion
