What a great trip to the states climbing in the Black Canyon of Gunnison (which was great), Rifle (which was polished but not half bad!), Eldorado Canyon (pretty damn good too) and Boulder Canyon (also – pretty good!).
So now it’s back to the Welsh winter, although since getting back I have been away to ‘Europe’ (aren’t we in Europe?) twice, so it’s not all doom and gloom.
Projects on the go right now are the V10 problem Broken Heart (see the nice video from Paul Higginson below) in The Cave of Justice, which will hopefully then morph in to Pete’s link up The Wire, which at V12 seems to be the easiest way to climb right from the back of the cave out and around the lip. Bring it on. It is also perhaps the softest V12 in there, so I might have a chance.
With the winter bouldering strength I have a couple of short route projects that I might get done depending on the weather, and depending on how psyched I get for Scottish winter and the Alps.
I have been putting the finishing touches to a destination article to the Black Canyon for UKC and also a Micro guide to the Scenic Cruise for Rockfax, both should be available soon and I’ll post a link on here.
