climbed some sandstone boulders above sturgis after dinner. All was going good until I was backing down off one problem with both hands on this great rail when the whole thing let loose. About a 50 pound block let loose that I was hanging on to. I went flying backward and flipped around backward landing on all fours. The ground was fairly uneven and I thought I broke my leg. Turned out to only be a twisted ankle which is slightly swollen today, but luckily the block missed me. Super bummed today though as jack and I were heading to the tower to do el cracko diablo and it is supposed to be 55 degrees. Maybe tomorrow.

Today my daughter introduced me to Clear Creek Canyon, as I've never been there. It's been a month since I last climbed and it was 45 degrees and shady, so I picked easy .10s for my off-the-couch initiation to the bolt clipping.

Fun day, and we had the Capitalist, High Wire, and Wall of Justice crags to ourselves.

Climbed up and down the scaffolding and stairs at the jobsite. Working on the final and highest section of roof . . . probably got about 700' of vertical while carrying 30 lbs. of tools and fasteners.

Climbed First Flatiron today with my lady. Mellow and beautiful, and not too many peeps out.
Guess this makes me a legit "Eldo Prancer"

Was amazing - not used to multi pitch fun after Turkey day…and the views of Boulder don't suck

I climbed 'Titanic Rock,' the flatiron at the mouth of Monument Canyon, with my father today. Perhaps only Cl. 4 but some decent exposure, wet lichen, and lots of loose Wingate fault-blocks keep it sporty. At 68 he is still more nimble than me on the stone (phukker does not even climb) and danced over the looseness where my feet/weight cut loose some big blocks. Pretty cool for a dude born in '45, and not too bad for a guy who by his own account hadda 'recycle' condoms whilst traveling around Mexico in '71 in a homebuilt camper. Eww. Showed those Catholics though.

I offered him a handline for one crux past a chockstone and he just had me haul his pack and scampered under the phukker, all the while marveling at the geology, the place, oblivious to my shortcomings as a son, as a person, as a guide. I love my dad!

I climbed Captain Cook (5.11a) at Corte Madera. It now has a new shiny bolt replacing the old ratty first one. It's an amazing lead, and I highly recommend it! I also put a bolt in on End of an Era, a route I did the FA of a few years ago. I didn't have a drill back then, so I just ran it out. It is now a beautiful 2 pitch 5.11a, not a 5.11a R/X. There was not a single soul at the crag, which was surprising given the perfect climbing weather.
