We kept up our New Year's tradition with a trip to Red Rocks again this year. Unfortunately I had to be back for work on January 2nd so it wasn't as long as we had hoped, but it was still packed with a lot of enjoyable climbing and hiking. We arrived Saturday morning and spent the day at Kraft. Casey onsighted Classic Monkey and sent Stake Your Claim, and I climbed the Pearl. The crowds were unbelievable in the area. It was like climbing at a gym! Sunday we took a rest day and Monday morning we decided to go into Red Rocks National Reserve where we spent the day at Oak Creek. I was really excited to try Blood Trails but it was baking in the sun. After tearing up my finger and getting very frustrated we hiked up the hill and Casey sent Drunken Monkey. Tuesday was our last day so we spent the morning at Willow Springs and went back to Blood Trails for a few hours after it went in the shade. Neither of us were able to send that day, but we left some projects that we will be happy to get back to with fresh skin!

A great send for Casey! One of his favorite climbs ever!

I definitely left some of my own trails...

I love the yellow and gray rocks in Willow Springs. A beautiful contrast to the red rocks that are so prominent in the area!
