Back in Time - Nicholas Milburn

Back in Time - Nicholas Milburn
September 04, 2013 -  Nicholas Milburn

Let’s go back in time. Not very far, just to late July of this year. During this amazing time in my life I was in Rifle, Colorado with my amazing girlfriend, Tiffany Murphy, and my two amazing friends, Dalan Faulkner and Joe Gifford. I planned my entire 3 month summer trip on the idea that I wanted to go back to Rifle and in the end we only spent a week there. However it was one of the best weeks of my life. We started our Rifle adventures by meeting up with Josh Levin, Charlie Andrews and...

After 5 weeks of clinging to sandstone mini jugs and getting pumped out of our minds in the Red River Gorge, my partner Tom and I have moved on to another classic American sport climbing destination: Rifle, Colorado. Making the transition from typically easy route reading and grippy rock in the RRG to the cryptic beta and polished limestone in Rifle was not an easy one. I envy the climber with the talent to immediately evolve and feel strong and accomplished when switching between such drastic styles.

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...

This is sort of a double take but it didn't make sense to post more than one, right!? Lung Fish is a legend route for Rifle. Its know for its intense bouldery sequences on bullet white limestone. It stood the test of time and was even upgraded since the first ascent by Utah climber Jeff Webb. In 2011 Joe Kinder bolted a climbed a direct start which tacks in a dynamic 7C boulder start into the original crux. Last weekend I took a trip out to Rifle with the Movement youth climbing team. Coaching has recently become...

I would like to introduce the newest member of the climbing community, Brooklyn the wonder-pup! Andrew and I drove to Colorado Springs on Sunday to expand our little family. It’s only been a few days, but we are already in love with this little ball of feistiness.Today will be the first day we attempt to take out new friend climbing. I love when there are a few well-behaved dogs at the crag, but I get as annoyed as the next person when they are running on ropes, stirring up dust, and otherwise making a mess of things. Brooklyn is...

Saturday the 17th of September was one of those days I can only describe as un-motivating. It was raining and cold as we packed the car. It dumped for the entire 1 hour drive to Rifle Mountain Park. At one point I began laughing and questioned Andrew about why we were still driving. I’d suggested throwing in the towel before we even made it to the highway. A day at the Glenwood Hot Springs was sounding perfect to me. But we kept driving. The canyon was pretty much empty when we arrived. Everything looked a little darker...
