Update from RMNP

Been at Rocky Mountain National Park now for 2 climbing days...today was a rest day. The first day we went up to Emerald Lake and checked it out, I did the Kind, and some other stuff that with no guide was unnamed and unrated. Worked on Whispers of Wisdom, a V10/11 that is awesome squeezy heel hooky fun with a 35' tall slab topout. Kaiya adjusted to the altitude and prepared to climb the next day. LOWER CHAOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The most amazing place for a boulderer, hard problems galore. Kaiya is working Geeks of the Industry and Potato Chip, two V7's that are almost perfect boulder problems...she should have a sendfest tomorrow. I almost did Bush Pilot on my first go post "using all the wrong holds to start and making it V13" near mantrum session. Moab photos will come soon, we were finishing up a guide to TumTum Bouldering all day so no time for photo uploading. Got Mike McClure's video camera now so little vids of some sending should follow. Catch you on the next rest day!!

Mike McClure recently added this blog to his website, www.climbidaho.com, as a feature for the duration of our trip. Be sure to check out his site it is awesome.
