    After almost 5 years off from climbing I finally rediscovered my childhood love for the sport and immediately jumped back in obsessed; sadly I instantly ruptured a tendon and was out for another long 6 months. Last summer I had finally healed and was ready to get strong, the psych was very high! I spent several months getting heavily back into the sport, training and climbing non-stop. On November 9th 2013 all the training finally paid off and I sent my hardest yet, "Butt Slammer" on Flagstaff Mountain; a project that went unrepeated for 40 years after several holds broke and the difficulty jumped from V5/6 to V12 (here is the video https://vimeo.com/79052323 ). Flagstaff Mountain in Boulder, Colorado is one of the most trafficked bouldering areas in an area where the best climbers in the world live, so being the first to climb a 40 year project there was the best feeling of my climbing career; I was back and so stoked to just be outside climbing!!! Sadly three days later while sending a boulder classic, "Flesh Fest" V10, I broke my knuckle while crimping. I still managed to make the send but at a heavy cost, I was out for the next four months, at least (here is the video https://vimeo.com/79545352 ). Four months later my finger was still having major problems and crimpers were completely out of the question so I sought out slopers, slopers, slopers!! On March 12, 2014 my first day back outside I decided to cruise up Boulder Canyon and hop on "Authentic Battle Damage" V12. I went up with very low expectations as my finger was still struggling but all the holds are very slopey and open handed so I figured why not give it a few burns...I somehow managed to send my second V12 in about ten tries my first day back in four months! Still having troubles with my knuckle especially when it comes to crimping but stoked to be back squeezing rocks; thanks to my radical Olmec shirts and my magical La Sportiva's I'm climbing stronger then ever! music: The Game, "Holy Water" (instrumental) www.olmecapparel.com

      Four months ago Hunter broke his knuckle while crimping...his finger is finally feeling climbable on slopers so Hunter put three days in at the Spot Bouldering Gym to feel out his injury and then it was off to Boulder Canyon. Being as crimpers and big throws are still a little ify he decided to look for something slopey (his anti-style). He went to the boulders with very low expectations and just super stoked to finally be outside again with his climbing buddies! To his surprise Hunter snagged a very quick send of one of his hardest climbs yet, "Authentic Battle Damage" V12. Congrats Hunter stoked to have you back where you belong, outside!!! www.olmecapparel.com www.kiltergrips.com

        A couple of problems from Boulder Canyon. Davey Jones' Footlocker was first climbed by Chris Schulte and I think only recently received a second ascent by John Glassberg. It was originally given V8 but my friend Kevin ripped a jug off the middle making it substantially harder. I thought V9/10 would be on the money. A great highball over the river and thoroughly worth the visit.
