Avoid this dreaded early season mistake – The winter months are upon us, salivation over winter precipitation is increasing by the minute as the snow is piling up on the Steamboat Ski area and throughout the Yampa Valley.

The Diamond on Longs Peak

Too Light and Not Fast Enough – Very early on in my climbing career I received a postcard that flaunted an image of The Diamond on Longs Peak. I soon become aware this spectacular alpine wall was a mere 3 hours drive from Steamboat Springs to the trailhead. For about 2 years this postcard sat […]

Climbing Palmer Hoyt in the Zirkel

Learning the Ropes – Just a few years ago, I was learning the ropes to climbing, literally and figuratively. Each outing was a new experience, learning new tricks and techniques from the diverse pool of mentors I began learning climbing from. My stoke was always cranked up to 11 each and every time I touched […]

Climbing Mecca of Colorado

Steamboat Springs Climbing: What’s to Know – As you may know, Steamboat is not the climbing mecca of Colorado. We have no major crag full of 3 and 4 star routes. There are no towering climbs with easy approaches, and many routes and areas go untouched for weeks to years at a time. What we […]

Seasonal Exodus: Climbing Red Rock Country

Spring Climbing In Eldorado Canyon – Months ago, good friends of mine received wonderful news, they are going to have a baby! It will be their first child, and they are beyond stoked for the arrival of their little bundle of awesome. But with a new life comes new responsibilities, often times these emerging responsibilities […]

Hunger for Adventure

Mountain biking to rock climbing – As the lifts stopped rolling this week, most from Steamboat found themselves in search of warmer climates. Most have been heading to Moab and Fruita; in other words, Steamboat III. Although these sorts of ventures sure tickle my fancy, I must stick around the valley for a few more […]

Wonderful Weekends

Weekends Aren’t Days Off – Many people ask me what I do with my weekends. This past week was no exception so let me give you a little glimpse into the life of this dirtbag ski bum. Unlike most, I begin my weekend on Monday afternoons around 1 pm. This is right about the time […]
