2011 & 24KARATS

I've been training overtime since I got back from the Midwest in preparation for 2011, and thankfully the 'no rest for the wicked' attitude has seemingly paid off.. I'm feeling prepared to welcome in this amazing new year, get on the road and take down some rock climbs!
party bus to Denver with an all-star crew - great New Years Eve
I've been leveling out my (lack of) power with some great bouldering sessions at the Spot here in Boulder, which truly is one of the nation's very best indoor bouldering facilities. This, coupled with tireless rope sessions at the BRC and trying my best to keep the dog tired has been exhausting.
... a little different than Kentucky..
I'll be setting for the final installation of the Boulder Rock Club's BCS rope comp tomorrow before packing up and heading west this weekend. Some adverse weather has shifted my plans, but I'm confident that some dry stone and good times await. Teaming up with the unstoppable Chris Weidner and of course, Zeke the power puppy, will certainly lead to some trouble making. Stay tuned!
Lastly, this fall I opened a new route titled, 'Twenty Four Karats' at the incredible Gold Coast, Red River Gorge. This is unquestionably one of my favorite routes that I've ever done, worthy of every star I could ever award. I thoroughly enjoyed climbing this route and am stoked to announce the arrival of the video, presented by ARCTERYX - put together by one of the hardest working dudes in the industry, Keith Ladzinski.
