Video from the other day at Clear Creek. Yes this is highball. I know it does not look like one. What you do not see under those pads, is a deep pit of doom. If you fall and go through the pads you will most likely snap something in your leg. I am hoping to build up the landing and make it safer.

I have been getting outside a lot lately trying to get back into outdoor shape for the upcoming summer season. Today I got outside with Matt L., Matt M., and T.J. and Julian. Our main goal was to check out this sweet new highball. It should be a great addition to the Front Range when it goes. Good links were being made until Matt broke a crucial hold off up high. The hold that broke was a crimp that was important to help setup for the big move out left. Now the move has to be done with a match down low and a big move to a bad hold on the arete. There is also still a really small crimp to use where the holds was but it makes the move a lot harder.
On the other side of this problem. There is an amazing clean face with a death landing. After today there is a stand start that goes around V5 and a lower start that is around V7.
I am psyched to get back and finish this project. Stay tuned for more pictures and videos.
