VIDEO: BD athlete Chris Schulte FAs new problem in Colorado
BD athlete Chris Schulte sent us the following update and video about a burly new problem he has established in the Poudre Canyon, north of Fort Collins, Colorado.
Poudre Canyon holds one of the best boulder garden scenes around Colorado, with a short, flat approach and a good concentration of problems on dense, quality granite. It’s a good place to visit on the edges of the winter season; summertime is too hot and buggy, winter can be ridiculously inhospitable. Herman Feissner and Blake Rutherford steered me towards this project, sitting right next to the Sharma Lunge on the same block. I put in a couple of days last fall, and after a couple more in the spring, I connected five delicate but rowdy moves into the finishing mantle. It’s not so much a small problem as a distilled one, with every move deciding the chances of the next. Named for the heart shape of the boulder, it’s a true bloc, and a good little problem worth solving.
