"Resonated."

Resonated - to have amplified vocal sound by the sympathetic vibration of air.
Paul Robinson shown here making the first ascent of his new Eldorado Canyon classic. Overlooked for years due to unobvious holds and its position over South Boulder Creek, Paul and I gave this arete a good look a few weeks back and decided to wait till the creek froze over to try it. Due to warm weather, we missed that window. But this afternoon, along with a psyched TJ Burchfield, we decided to spare a few pads to the water. After an hour or so of cleaning and about an hour of working the moves another new problem was established in Eldo. It is definitely of the highest of quality for the grade (V9) in Boulder.
