Use It or Lose It

I just returned from a nine-day trip to Fontainebleau with Cortney, and have lots of great pictures to share. I'll be adding them over the next week or so.

For now, here's a short video of me climbing the problem Use It or Lose It at Gold Bar. I was really psyched to climb this problem, even though it's not the hardest thing around.

In other news, even though I don't usually play the link game, Jamie Emerson recently posted some nice thoughts and video about a problem he repeated in Colorado. It looks like they have found some fantastic rock there this summer, which I find inspiring and motivating to read about... we have got to find a large area of this quality in the Cascades - I know it's out there!!
