Spring in Colorado.. Snow, rain, sleet, hail, all in a 2-minute space, followed by sunshine. The days look nice, with all that clear, end-of-winter light and moisture in the air. Everything is greener, which gives kinda-dry Colorado a sort of European feel. A lot of time is spent searching for boulders in between the precipitation; patience is pretty key this time of year.
This was a great weekend for 5.10’s athletes. Alex Puccio took first place, closely followed by team-mate Alex Johnson. And we applaud our new team members, Francesca Metcalf and Isabelle Faus in 4th and 5th. Paul Robinson was a very close 2nd place. We’re proud of our team! We had a very strong showing, with Chris Webb Parsons, Ethan Pringle, Matt Bosley, Julian Bautista, Carlo Traversi, Dave Wetmore and Charlotte Jouette-Bosley all making strong showings. Thanks Team!
Five Ten® Yosemite Jeans have a new logo that doubles as a drink coaster. The goal is to cut down on hang tag waste--we noticed that 100% of all hangtags end up in the trash. So we designed a cool tag that doubles as a drink coaster (we recommend removing it from your jeans before placing it under a drink). But, don't expect to buy it in China!
I'm finally done with school... at least for the summer. That means 3 months in Colorado. As the weather here in the Southeast has deteriorated, I have been spending more and more time in the gym. I've even met one of my training goals. I can now do one arm hangs galore! But after 6 weeks of training it's time to get back outside. - BRION VOGES
