    Last year while climbing at the Satellite Boulders in the Fatirons of Boulder, Colorado I noticed a right exit to the classic "Face Full of Brian" V8; this problem climbed through the crux of "Face Full of Brian" but instead of finishing on the jugs up and slightly left, after the crux of "Face Full" you surfed out right to a very obvious sloping rail...although this line was very obvious there was also an obvious reason it hadn't been climbed...the landing, there was even a really old super rusted and bent to shit bolt just to the right of the sloping rail (so obviously somebody had atleast tried the problem in the way past with a rope). After finding all the holds and getting some chalk on my hands and the rock, I decided to do my best at padding the landing and giving it some goes...I was pretty scared at first due to the very big and commiting last move over the seemily heinous landing but after taking a few falls on that move I realized that the death fall was an illusion of the mind and the reality of it was that you kind of just fall straight down onto this taller rock and not down into the hole of death. It was all just some mental tricky so I cleared my mind sent it from the stand start "Orion's Belt" and then gave it some burns from the low start "O'brian's Belt" and to my suprise I made very quick work of the boulder and sent it in only a few go's and I never had a bad fall!! Yesterday, April 20, 2015 I went back to repeat and film the boulder, this send footage is of the repeat. I dubbed the stand start "Orion's Belt" V7 because there are three holds on the obvious sloping rail and they mimic the image of "Orion's Belt" in the sky, plus it's at the Satellite Boulders so something space related seemed fitting; the sit start "O'brian's Belt" V9/10 starts on "Face Full of Brian" and climbs into "Orion's Belt". "The Tale of Scroatie McBoogerballs" V7 is directly behind you if your facing "Balance in Nature" it starts left hand in a 2/3 finger pocket undercling, and right hand on a small crimper just up and right around the arete. Do one very powerful move to a left hand sloper jug at the lip into a campus match then pull onto the face...fun movement!

          Over the past year I've been #blessed with the privilege of shooting the worlds best bouldering all over Colorado. Lots of shit has gone down in front of my lens, but for whatever reason, maybe just being lazy, some world class send clips were just allowed to sit dormant on my hard drives, never to be seen by anyone... until now!! So crack a brew, put on your own music if you want, and help yourself to a serving of raw uncut sendage from the bros! SWOOP! Dave's ascents of Aslan and The Alley shot by SAM TINGY, who is at large with his go pro and should be followed on instagram @skynar WE ARE ISLAND!!! www.island.io

              • First Ascents in Boulder Canyon, Halloween 2014

                Right around Halloween my buddy Hiro took me out to "Witch Hunt" in Boulder Canyon. On the short approach to "Witch Hunt" there is a roadside boulder with a tyrollean attached, we immediately noticed several untouched lines on it so we came back the next day to climb it! This boulder ended up being an incredible moderate boulder providing us with a V0,3,6,7,8, and 9 and in my opinion it's a way better option for your average climber then the Citadel Boulder and a great progression boulder as each problem is just slightly harder then the next. Plus it sits right on the river in a gorgeous setting with a literal 30 second approach...great for the ladies!!! Definitely a seasonal boulder once spring rolls in and the water rises it will be unclimbable until next winter so hop on it now!! The first line in the video "Hocus Pocus" V7 is the first line we cleaned, chalked and climbed. Not sure if it has been climbed before but it didn't seem so; either way great movement, with a cool LH side pull sloper and finishing throw; I got the first ascent and Hiro quickly followed starts LH side pull RH really low undercling. I immediately came back several days later and tried the middle line "Frankenstyle" V8 dubbed after its funky "frankenstein" style moves; very unique and might be harder if your taller but I'm not sure it still awaits a second ascent, start sit started on lowest slopers first move is up to the big horizontal rail! The last line "Monster Mash" climbs over the water out the small scooped cave utilizing some cool compression moves and a right heel hook; starts LH on the horizontal seam RH on a sloping pinch, this line was the hardest for me personally probably V9, this one also awaits a second ascent. Go try them if you need directions just ask!! The IndoFLO is the Indo Board I used in the beginning of the video. I start everyday with a 5 minute core workout on this and instead of sitting on the couch I stand on it while I watch television and I've never felt so strong in my life. You can literally get a full core workout while standing at your desk or watching TV. The IndoFLO is the simplest way to build raw core power and I now base ALL of my training around this igneous device. Get Indo it, it's worth it!! www.indoboard.com www.asanaclimbing.com www.olmecapparel.com instagram: hunterdamianiart HUGE THANKS to my friends who helped me film: Hiro Watanabe, Ben Chapman, Brian

                  If there is one thing in this world I enjoy doing as much as climbing it's art! When I'm not climbing, I'm painting and when I'm not painting, I'm drawing. For the past 8 years I've been creating art for the famous "Psychedelia" at the Spot Bouldering Gym in Boulder, Colorado. "Psychedelia" is a massive black light climbing competition, the holds get painted florescent and the walls get decked out in tape...everything glows!!! Every year I do a massive piece of tape art for the event and this year was my biggest yet about 15 square feet and 100% made from TAPE, luckily I caught the creation on camera through time lapse. Just before "Psychedelia" weekend I took down my mega project for the season "European Human Being" V12. I had only tried it several times but every time I went to it I would fall on the last move until I found my double clutch beta and then it was on! Immediately after the send for filming purposes I got back and repeated the boulder without falling; gave it the good old "bang bang." So psyched to have finally taken this ultimate crimp line down!!! Can't wait for next season. www.asanaclimbing.com www.indoboard.com www.olmecapparel.com https://www.facebook.com/hunter.damiani instagram: hunterdamianiart HUGE THANKS to all my friends who helped me film: David Powell, Patrick Hodge, Wesley Fowler

                    Who doesn't love watching the girls climb boulders, it's by far the most inspiring...this one is lady's only and is the 3rd part of my Secret Spot videos. It features Michelle Watson getting the first ascent of "Momma Bear" V3 (her first first ascent) and climbing the classic V0 highball "Don't Mess With Texas; Courtney Sanders gets the second ascent of "Pepe Le Pew" V8 and takes down the first boulder I established at the Secret Spot "FogHorn LegHorn" V7 and last but not least Victoria Gezel at only 9 years old gets the third ascent and first female ascent of "Vulcan Crimp" V8, incredibly inspiring to see such a young woman climbing so strong!!!! www.asanaclimbing.com www.indoboard.com www.olmecapparel.com

                      This is part two of the several videos I've been making and will be releasing of the new area I've been developing just outside Boulder, Colorado. The first prolem is is my first ascent of a mega classic "Flyin' Squrl" V10, named after its very commiting final crux dyno. The second boulder is actually the first line I ever put chalk on at the Secret Spot when I first deiscovered the area several years ago. Alex Manikowski made the first ascent and this is me getting the second it's an incedible line with very unique crack features and defnitialy is better for short people, I also put up a sit start that will be released in part 4! The third boulder, "FogHorn LegHorn" V7 is actually th first line I ever climbed at the Secret Spot and is THE classic line!!! The first move is very tough and has shut down quite a few strong climbers, this is Cesar Valencia getting the second ascent. The fourth line "Bugs Bunny" V9 is the "FogHorn LegHorn" direct; instead of bailing left to the good holds you go staright up and slightly right to a very "Bugs Bunny" style hop for the finish. The last line, "Shelf Life" V8 was cleaned by my buddy from South Africa very starnge but cool movement on an undercling that is completly hollow but rock solid...kinda scary. Love this area and psyched to finally begin sharing it with the world. Stay Posted for way more footage of this incredible new spot just outside Boulder!!! special thanks to: Indo Board www.indoboard.com Asana Climbing www.asanaclimbing.com Olmec Apparel www.olmecapparel.com
