I have received my tracking information from Asana and my new pad and gear is on the way and should be here soon. I have ordered the new team bag, a bouldering bag and the sick new disturbed crash pad. The crash pad I customized with some crazy bright colors.
I also broke down and ordered some holds for Thrillseekers from E-grips. I think the last E-Grips set thrillseekers ordered was back when E-grips started. I ordered a set of the buttton crimps and signed up for the first dibs hold of the month club. So be sure to come in and check out the sweet new problems that will be going up with these holds.
I will have reviews of all the new gear up over the next few weeks.

I have decided to start writing about some of my favorite gear and why I use it. In the last five years I have used the Hustler for my street shoes, approach shoes and everything in between. When I first got the shoe I was not sure what to expect from it, how would it handle talus fields? Would it be comfortable to use all day? How would it hold up route setting and forerunning?
1. First off, it is a stylish shoe with a great fit, breathability and build quality.
2. Hiking to places like Mount Evans and RMNP in these shoes is super comfortable and never has caused a problem. In the talus fields scrambling around trying to find problems the shoes stick and feeling like I am going to slip has never crossed my mind.
3. When I route set, I wear this shoe. I do not want to keep switching to my climbing shoes and want to be comfortable when setting for a whole afternoon. Fore running the problems it holds up extremely well, the rubber sticks to even the smallest foot holds and getting a good sense of of what my creation will feel like is easy.

With all this snow and cold lately it has been quite a challenge to get outside and climb. Snow is expected to keep falling until Monday. Here are a couple old videos from when the weather was nice and sunny.

Today I took the day off from doing anything and decided to go climbing. When it has been snowing and been cold, there is only place to go that comes to mind; good old Morrison. Matt was psyched to head out and get on a couple crazy highballs in the lobby. One of which Matt almost died on. I have video and pictures of the highballs and other stuff that I will get up here in the next day or so.
Matt showed me a new variation to Helicopter called CPR. It involves making a big move to a decent crimp then a crazy drop knee to a bad edge, then you toss up into a good rail and finish helicopter. Anyways here is the video of CPR, hope ya enjoy.

I have decided to move my blog over to this site for various reasons. Over the next few days I will have this thing up and running fully. I will be keeping the old site up to keep all the pictures and videos from the past up on the web. Stay tuned for more.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the new site!
