A Soggy Day in Eldo

Having an old friend in town is a great excuse to go climbing, weather be damned. Adam stretched out a layover at Denver International Airport long enough to hit the crag and catch up over some beers. Better still, our little crew had Rincon Wall and the entire West Ridge of Eldorado Canyon to ourselves- It’s amazing what a little rain in Boulder will do. Big ups to Tyler for leading Climb of the Century, and Nate for leading Wendego- I’m glad I was watching from a safe distance.  Here’s a few photos from the day…

Tyler - Holy crap, Eli, great pictures! Thanks for putting these up. I love the photo of Adam bearing down on foxtrot in the pouring rain. Hope to get out again soon.July 30, 2013 – 12:27 am

Chris - I just have one question. When did Adam move back to Boulder? :)

And, of course, great shots Eli.July 30, 2013 – 7:30 am

Adam - I moved back on Saturday night after 3 weeks in Spain, Switzerland and Germany – got settled in, bought a hamster and then was uprooted again on Tuesday morning.

Great post, Eli.July 30, 2013 – 3:01 pm
