Eldorado Canyon Pony Keg Boulder
We had a rough night. A drugged up stranger tried to break into the house at 2:50 on Saturday morning. The police responded to quickly our call, and took the man into custody. Damage was cleaned up in about an hour, but we were feeling tired and a bit stressed the next day. We felt like a laid back bouldering day, and the Pony Keg boulder fit the bill. Ashley says she hates sharp holds and lichen, but she loves hard traverses. Love trumps hate. She wants another day on the atrociously sharp "Pony Keg Traverse."
Going for the lichen covered top out on the "Northwest Corner."
This was my third day on the "Center Route." I'd never gotten on it fresh before, and I thought it topped out to the left. After I tried matching on the dish and moving right, it didn't feel quite as sandbagged. If "Milton" is V3, I guess this can be V4.
A peaceful day, after a crazy night.
