Few weeks ago the weather looked great for camping and climbing in Utah. The plan was to go back to Joe’s Valley, one of my favorite sandstone bouldering areas, try some old projects and possibly new ones. I was able to get video and photos from the trip, enjoy!

Long time since my last blog… The 2014 alpine bouldering season has been great. Over the last six or seven months John Gass and I have been going to Area B trying some established climbing and looking to develop some new boulders as well. There are some climbs that we thought are worth sharing with the climbing community especially when they were so easy to locate. The first photo below displays where some of the new climbing is in relation to 1%er V13 (established by Chris Schulte). Below is a photo list and suggested grades for s.
It has been awhile since my last blog… I’ve made couple of trips to different climbing ares in Utah in the past two months. Now becoming one of my favorite “tricky” areas to boulder is MOAB, Utah (Big Bend). The rock is so pretty and the surrounding tall cliffs make it even more perfect. We ended up climbing most of the easier climbs and had great time getting shut down by some tricky boulders. It was nice to have the time to relax, hike and climb in the area. Below are some photos from the trip that i took. Dan Entmache.

It has been a long time since I had updated my blog. The past month has been amazing for alpine bouldering in Colorado. John Gass and I have been hiking to Mount Evans since mid March and climbing at the Dali wall. Two weekends ago we had Paul Nadler, Alex Manikowski and Justin Jaeger joining us to the Dali wall as well. The next day we also visited Upper Chaos at Rocky Mountain National park. Most of the boulders were still under the snow. We were able to climb at Green 45 and Blood Money. Below I have uploaded some photos from the.

Bouldering at Clear Creek Canyon during this time of the year is great. Yesterday John Gass, Alex Manikowski, Ben and I went back to a problem called “Off the Books” with the hopes of finishing it. On one of my goes I was able to get my left hand on the finish hold but my foot slipped as i was matching it and fell right at the end of the problem. It was desperate but I ended up finishing and matching the hold on my last go. Few days before this climb I was able to climb another great boulder called “Recession Proof”..
Last year in 2011 John Gass and I had decided to start working on short movie series about the alpine bouldering in Colorado. We have managed to record huge amount of the climbing as well as some new first ascents that are to follow in the next few video parts that we are going to publish. You could expect bouldering problems starting at V0 and some much more difficult boulders up to V14. There will be climbing footage of areas such as “Area A” and “Lincoln Lake” both located in Mount Evans, CO. Feel free to follow m.
