BUM LIFE !

Well October 28th saw a huge dump of snow which basically shut Boulder down ... The mall closed early and in a panic Gomez & I headed out to get supplies down at the local whole foods ... On the way we hit up the Library to do a lil skate boarding , undercover ,,, we were greeted in open arms by the locals who like to hang out FULL TIME to say the least ...
I think it will take a few days to melt & dry so we will enjoi the plethora of climbing gyms Boulder has to offer & I think we want to have a gym comparison next week right here on HARDCLIMBS.BLOGSPOT.COM
STAY TUNED !

I marched around the canyon, to the back and up to Jade and snow covers all !! which made for a lame hike as well the boulders are soaked too ... boo hoo ....

I tried to sell this lil diddy to a number of people and it just didn't make the cut. Check it out and you decide thumbs up or thumbs down? I think the part where Jon ONE turns into the Hulk at the end is priceless my self, but who am I anyway ?

the PUCCIO interview...

Well World Cup Climbing came and went yet again this year and a party or two it was... I composed this lil diddy for all to see... I think the intensity by Carol Woods is inspiring. Great Job by everyone who competed... it was truly a joy to watch...
enjoi.
The weekend before the BIG comp. none other than Dave Graham himself walked up to Mt. Evans and took down a long standing project, otherwise know as the BIG WORM... He proposed the BIG V14 grade. Chris Shulte as well as Paul Robinson have made repetitions and P-Rob felt it could be V13. Time will only tell. Noah Bigwood was close to this more than five years ago.
After I returned from the World Cup and sobered up a lil bit, I had the chance to get back up to the old familiar Rocky Mountain National Park. Mostly going up late and doing some of the old problems (there is still a lot of snow). I did have the pleasure of going up to the green 45 the other day and capturing Nalle Hukkatatival making the 4th ascent of JADE !!!!! It was very impressive to say the least. We hiked up only to be rained on... the temperature dropped and the rain stopped... Nalle warmed up slightly on the stand start... It began to start raining again and Nalle dispatched with JADE IN THE RAIN !!! My jaw was on the floor, Nalle is truly stepping it up a notch, and is becoming a major force in the bouldering game... great job AMIGO !!!!
I will post some of Nalles Jade ascent footage on hardclimbs.blogspot.com but am including it in a full length bouldering movie I am currently working on and hope to have out this summer. until then enjoi it out there...

Gomezez NEW lil video camera ...

Well Gomez got a new lil video camera the other day and we thought we would go see what we could film ... so we decided to go up to Mt Evans ... March is a crazy month to go up there I thought ? but it turned out to be a perfect day, sunny, clear blue skies ... Herm & Theo came along and after the hike we found ourselves warming up on Beer-stadt ... the old familiar problem felt relatively easy in the good conditions ... Herm showed us yet another crazy method I had never seen ... we then walked up the hill to the Dali wall ... It was great, Gomez came very close to Ode to the Modern Man & I did Supa Gui ... Gomezes NEW lil rig proved it self as Luke fell down a hill with it in hand ... and the lightness of it is outstanding ... its a standard Samsung DV camcorder AMAZING, run ya about 100 US DOLLARS. so check it out in this here video ... enjoi ...

Boulder has been very fun for the motivated lately before the storm Dave made a quick ascent of Never Say Never, a historic V11 slab in Eldorado Canyon as well he dispatched with Eric DeCarias Black Pearl, 5.13+ slab on the Lower Peanuts Wall & also I watched D-Dub do all the moves on the Supa Project, up on Cob Rock, impressive to say the least ... so it seams GAME ON ... 24 hour party people unite. Lets go climbing !
