Red Rocks and North Black

Well hello my little puddings of delight, how are we?

This weekend saw us head to Red Rocks on saturday which was a blast, except for Ross forgot his shoes so had to boulder barefoot haha... poor guy, we felt sorry for him but you have to laugh :-)

We all did some great problems and I put up two new problems, both about v6, called 'Smooth Predator' (a right hand exit variant of 'Smoothie' v6) and 'Interrobang', a right hand version of an existing v5 near the river that climbs the raddest slopers I have ever used... like bang!

Sunday saw the whole crew trek out to North Black. First stop was Frost Hollow where we warmed up and then Ross made short work of 'Wrestling', a tough and powerful v6 that Russell also made a solid ascent of.

After that we went to Dog Rock where I managed to send 'Snoop Doggy Dog' v8 on my 3rd shot, then Ben followed soon after. I was well stoked! We all then went and did a great v6 called 'Press Play', a classic problem, classic :-)

Well, we have one more weekend before we are heading to the Grampians for two weeks, cant wait, should be a blast, we are all keen as mustard, bring it on!!!

Here are few pics from Russell from this weekend, enjoy!
