The Nemesis Projects - David Graham

The Nemesis Projects - David Graham
October 27, 2012 - 

Over the last couple weeks while hanging out here in Nederland, I have been trying a bunch of different boulder problems. The theme of the adventure this year has been conquering the old battles of the past, and taking on even more daunting ones from the present. I have referred to problems which seem impossible to me in the past as Nemesis Projects, and over the years, they have been increasingly interesting to me, and increasingly satisfying to accomplish. Things which have challenged me for years are drawing me in, and I have felt an enormous progression in my...

It is done! I sent The Elder Statesman on Friday. Some pain, a lot of blood and tape but it was a lot of fun!It's not a long route, but during the first 25 moves you need a lot of concentration. The wall isn't that steep and the holds are small and sharp. So its a lot of struggling with the skin and conditions. Handling this and being precise and concentrated is the main difficulty of the route I think.Markus Bock did the first ascent in 2011 and graded it 11/11+, so it is one of the three hardest...

The Granite Gripper at Enchanted Rock - Joseph Gifford
October 25, 2012 - 

A competition is held at Enchanted Rock State Park, TX every year and I compete in it every year. This year was an awesome competition the volunteers and guys that put it together did a superb job. The format is different than most competitions, its three rope climbs and two boulders. The rope climbing at enchanted rock is a lot of trad climbing with cracks, slabs, and arets, it's really a different type of climbing than what I'm used to. While the bouldering is more typical with powerful moves, plenty of arets, and tiny crimps.

Ever since I started climbing on ropes last year, I’ve thought about getting on some multi-pitch/big wall climbing sometime in the distant future. But then I went to Yosemite for the first time with some friends a few weeks ago, and when I looked up at El Capitan at night I counted 24 flashlights (14 lights on The Nose alone). After that I just couldn’t stop thinking about it anymore.

Fall is here in Colorado. The leaves are changing and a chilly breeze inhabits the air. This can only mean one thing: Psychedelia is on it's way! For those of you who don't know, Psychedelia is The Spot Gym's annual halloween themed glow in the dark black light bouldering competition and the second of four comps in the Spot Bouldering Series. Every year The Spot replaces all the regular light bulbs with black lights and begins painting hundreds of holds with fluorescent paint. They also bring in a handful of people to create tape art. It's amazing what people...
