Circadian Rhythm - Jon Cardwell

 
Circadian Rhythm - Jon Cardwell
 
April 17, 2012 -  Jon Cardwell    
 

I've known about Circadian Rhythm ever since I've been visiting Colorado for climbing.  Its notorious for its intricate and technical moves leading to a large, powerful jump to the lip on Swiss-Style granite.  Located in the middle of the popular 420 boulders it remained a project for years until a young first-ascent-maestro David Graham stumbled upon it in 2001.  He solved the moves and claimed the first ascent naming it Circadian Rhythm for one reason or another, perhaps for completing the last obvious line on the boulder.  None the less, it has stood the test of time and remains a Colorado classic and a must do for those who are capable. 

Beau Kahler and I took a few minutes to shoot this piece, Enjoy!

Date of ascent, February 18th, better late than never!
