On Sunday, I got my first tour of Eldorado Canyon with Rich and 2x Matt M. (Matt Miller and Matt Merrell). We started with warm ups on the Gill Block. Despite the slippery texture of the holds, all of us put some effort in on the V6 crimpfest. Situner fired off the only send, and then got out the camera to take pictures. Rich working out beta: I am really psyched to go back and put more effort in on this one! It's a really awesome climb, but wears through skin quickly!
Next up was Resonate (V9). Matt and Rich and Matt spent some time on this one, and sends are definitely coming soon.
Weird for a climber to say, but hopefully it stays cold and snow enough for the river to stay frozen and have this one be climbable...
Matt and Matt worked out some semi-skin friendly beta.
Determined that commitment was the answer, Rich got on Germ Free Adolescence (V5). He was rewarded with a proud winger from the lip. Both the climber and spotter walked away with relatively minor scraps and bruises... and a story about the REALLY BIG ONE! (photo evidence proves it's not an exaggeration)
Matt decided to give this one a go and pulled off a flash (much to the relief of everyone below!) Nice job Situner!
