Well my summer plans have finally come together. I'm heading out on Thursday to the New River Rendezvous with Ronnie Jenkins to rep 5.10. I've only been to the New once before and I've never been to the Rendezvous so I don't know what to expect but I would really like to try a route there called Still Life (5.14b). This one will be the hardest route I've ever even tried but it's short and bouldery looking so maybe I stand a chance. I just hope it doesn't rain. Then Ronnie and I are gonna be heading on a little road trip doing some 5.10 shoe demos and hanging out. You can follow our trip on the 5.10 blog here where I'll be posting a bunch of PHOTOS and WORDS that you will NEED TO READ.
My ULTIMATE DESTINATION will be the couch at John Gass's apartment in Denver - a place that seems to have become my home-away-from-home in the past couple years. I'm really looking forward to climbing at altitude again. A bunch of guys from THE SOUTH are gonna be around too so it should be an awesome time. My goals for the trip are 1) remain uninjured 2) climb boulders. I think it will be quite a successful trip!
See you out there,
