First things first:
Cam Cross, Old Man, and Chip Phillips are TOTAL BADASSES.
I had the good fortune of enjoying a mid-week session with them. Upon rolling up to Area A at Evans, it was clear that the rag-tag bridge that had been constructed to cross the stream just would not do.
These guys took the initiative to tear apart the old one, and build a proper bridge that should withstand several seasons of traffic. Behold:
First order of business was to tear apart the old bridge. This proved to go quickly. Next Chip and Cam started constructing supports.
I'm desperately trying to keep from making "old-man sawing logs joke". This is a PAIN IN THE ASS. We all took turns sawing through downed trees and I can honestly say that I AM THE WEAKEST LINK.
Cam and Chip digging the supports in.
Finished product is SOLID. The trees we cut up completely bridge the gap now and the water flows freely beneath so there is no soggy stuff.
Please take the time to thank these guys for putting aside climbing for a morning of HARD work in the interest of bettering one of the country's best bouldering areas.
You guys ROCK!
