Just got back from the Colorado with Mark. Hit up Mt.Evans, area A and Lincoln Lake, and also checked out some of RMNP, seeing Moraine Park, and Chaos canyon. Rock quality is high, but not terribly unique. Most problems were a variation on crimp ladders and/or edges. There is a distinct dearth of problems in the V4-V8 range, and areas don't tend to be very concentrated. Minimum two mile approaches seem to be the norm, with an accompanying elevation change of 1500 feet. Most of the climbing we did was at an altitude of 10.500-12.000 feet. Of course there were some very nice lines but in summary: Colorado, over-hyped.

With that enjoy some videos, and there's a second raw vid of Time Line to give you an idea of size. Gettin' psyched to shralp this season! Woot woot!
