Boo for blogger spam...Lame.

Yea for cool lines and good times in Boulder. Thanks for the tour Andy. I'm psyched to come back to wander around some more.

Oh, yeah, can't forget the random Twilight zone dude (all alone, without a pad) that fell and cracked his dome right before we got there, then asked about beta for Tower of Power, but turned down ibuprofen or kleenex to clean up the blood running down his face. I haven't hung out in Boulder much, but if that is normal, I might come down more often just for giggles. :)

I'm rather taken with that first line. Not usually a fan of lip traverses, but here I am, smitten from afar. Or is it actually an arete? Ahh, so it is. Nice photos, Andy. Good to know you're still bushwhacking around the flatirons.

brazell: less commenting and more developing the prime granite you found last month.

we have expectations of you. do NOT disappoint us.

just wondering where the arete problem is located ? Looks sweet. The 4th (bottom) pic from Feb 24th looks like the PB boulders.

Beta pls....

thanks, Chad

Hey Wassup Chad. The shots are all from the PB's. The arete is smack dab in the middle of the garden.

Andy,

Compliments on the interview on Momentumvm. Very well done and I can relate to lots of what was said, having relocated to CO to pursue climbing and shitty, dead end jobs. Instead of starting a well paying job somewhere else in my field.

Not exactly the same thing you described, but similar.

Anyways, nice work. And best of luck.

Yeah, excellent interview and insight into what it's all about.
