Spring Already?

Last weekend was cool but bearable, and climbing in Boulder Canyon was enjoyable and uncrowded. This weekend, with the temperatures in Boulder reaching a high of 75, every climber in the area seemed to be out enjoying the nice weather. Matt and I got up early on Saturday to score the pole position on Icarus, a romp up Tower One in Eldorado Canyon. We climbed the first pitch of The Great Zot and shivered at the windy belay, topped out in the sun and sweated our way down the rappels. Every route in Eldo had a party already on it, so we bailed for Boulder Canyon and a newly developed area that wouldn’t have the traffic. All in all a fantastic day!
