Red Rocks Bouldering

This past winter we were able to take a trip to Las Vegas, Nevada to boulder for two weeks. It was our first major trip in our new/ converted van, Rodney. We'd both been to Red Rocks previously to rope climb, but neither of us had ever really bouldered in Red Rocks before this trip. We found the bouldering there to be really fun and plentiful. We were lucky enough to be joined by many friends on the trip. Following are a few images from our time there.

Terminal Cancer 2013

I have looked at many photos and videos over the years of Terminal Cancer. It has been on my list for some time and last week I was able to check it off my list. It is quite the couloir with perfect walls that run almost the entire 2000 vertical feet. I headed out to the Ruby's with my friends Dylan Crossman and his girlfriend Mckenna Peterson. We started a little late in the afternoon, but the couloir being a north facing chute we felt good about still getting after it. From the road the couloir looks very steep, but once in it and hiking it felt rather mellow. The Couloir is just wide enough to make rather good turns all the way down and we were lucky to find good chalky pow the entire couloir.

A look at the couloir from the road. Looks pretty intimidating at first.
A little river crossing to get to the skinning.
Dylan and Mckenna about half way up the couloir. It wasn't very steep, but it kept going and going and going. Much longer than it looked.

Sunshine and lunch on the top. Good views of the area.
Dylan making about a thousand tele turns down this couloir.
It was truly an amazing place to visit. One of the most beautiful couloirs I have ever had the pleasure of skiing.
