Is that Hueco? No, it's Lander in January!
Well I spent a day at "The New World" with Jesse and Chris. After a day of hiking, a few years ago, I'd written the area off as too featured. But Chris showed us some worthy boulders he found. Quite a few classic lines need to be done out there.
It's the perfect spot if you're looking for solitude.
Ashley recently finished one of her projects at the Beach. She got the second ascent of "Triple S" V6.
We spent a cold, but beautiful, session up at Torrey Valley.
And then there is the land of new projects, The Frontside, at Oz. I already knew Oz was really good, but I hadn't seen the south side of the mountain. And I never would have guessed that it was accessible in winter. Chris and Jeremy made it out there at the end of 2015, and that started a winter bouldering resurgence in Lander. Groups of boulderers have been getting out there a couple times a week ever since. My first trip was a day of climbing and exploration with Jesse and Chris.
Here's Ana on her project "Heart Sing" V7.
She came very close, and I'm sure she'll get it on her next trip.
As you can see, the list of things to do is growing really quickly. And as long as we keep getting sunny weekends, and weeks without much snow, it's a great time to get things done.
