Portland Boulder Rally - Nicholas Milburn

Portland Boulder Rally - Nicholas Milburn
October 17, 2013 - 

As I'm sure most of you know the Portland Boulder Rally was this past weekend and it was awesome! This was the third time the comp was held and the first time I went. I made a last minute decision to go and I'm glad I did.When I first got the gym there was all kinds of fun stuff going on. There was a tent with sponsors, free stuff and food. Pro athletes were being interviewed. Posters were being signed. In all it was pretty cool. It seemed like Boulder temporarily relocated to Portland for the weekend and competition...

Petzl Roc Trip and Beyond - Jon Cardwell

Petzl Roc Trip and Beyond - Jon Cardwell
December 12, 2012 - 

I just arrived in the States after a three week stint in South America. There were two plans layed out for this trip, the first being the 10th annual Petzl Roc Trip. I was fortunate enough to have been part of developing the Piedra Parada for the event back in March. I joined a small group from Petzl and others from Argentina to discover, bolt and clean new lines in the various rock formations that surround the Piedra. That first trip, even though not my first visit to South America, taught me a lot about myself and the unique...

First at Asethetic Invitational - Jon Cardwell
September 05, 2012 -  Jon Cardwell

Last weekend I was in Irvine, California to participate in the first competition at the new Aesthetic Climbing Gym in Lake Forest. I was asked to participate in this event by a great team of organizers about a month ago and decided that it would be well worth the trip. The event took place on Sunday, the grand opening of the gym itself. There would be two rounds, a semi final in the morning (which ended up to more a qualifier) and a finals round in the evening beginning at 5 p.m. I was fresh...

Bad Girls Club 5.14d Fourth Ascent - Jon Cardwell

Bad Girls Club 5.14d Fourth Ascent - Jon Cardwell
May 22, 2012 - 

In 2010 Joe Kinder bolted a line in the Wicked cave which he dubbed Bad Girls Club. I first tried the route last June with Dave Graham. At first we were skeptical, but then after a couple days we had the moves figured out. For one reason or another I left it unfinished for the season; the boulders at RMNP and different crags were calling my name. Shortly after, young Matty Hong completed the route for its first ascent and suggested 9a (5.14d)which would make it the first of its grade in the canyon....

Clear Creek Canyon - Jon Cardwell

Clear Creek Canyon - Jon Cardwell
April 19, 2012 -  Jon Cardwell

I've been climbing in Clear Creek Canyon lately. The weather has been almost perfect everyday since I returned from Argentina so I've been taking advantage. Last week I spent most of my time at the New River Wall. This crag is mostly known for the classic Daniel Wood's boulder Dark Waters V13 and an older 5.13a route Sonic Youth. However, during the last couple years the wall has been revisited by Brian Kimball. He worked hard throughout the course of two? season to develop a number of classic routes that climb throughout the overhang...
