Whew. It’s been a busy couple of months here to say the least. With school, college apps, ACT testing, college apps, and more college apps, I’ve barely had any time to get outside during the stellar Colorado fall. Thankfully, however, I just turned in my last college app and hopefully I’ll have some more free time in the coming months.


 

Yesterday was the first time I touched rock since early October, and man did it feel good! I headed up to The Lost Boulder deep in Eldorado Canyon with a great crew on an absolutely stunning November day. The road closure in Eldo added an extra 20 minutes or so to the already lengthy approach, but we didn’t mind. We spent the whole day up there without seeing another soul, so it was worth it. I managed to tick the wonderful Elegant Infinite despite taking a few diggers in the process. After a few hours at The Lost Boulder, we headed farther up canyon to try and find the elusive Blue Whale, a boulder that I’ve been wanting to climb for years. Though it took some searching, we eventually found the massive boulder nestled deep in the woods, and it was well worth the hike. After sussing out beta, everyone sent and we set off back down the trail in the fading evening light.
