This weekend was filled with a bunch of hard work at the Peacock boulders in southern Colorado. Dave, a buddy that I grew up in Ohio with, a fellow climber and who is now a first ascenionist, and I got inspired by the short and compact sandstone at the area and bolted some of the finer looking possibilities. In all we established 7 new sport climbs and one crack climb. Now the area boasts nearly 20 boulder problems and 8 short and powerful routes up to 35 feet tall. We currently have 1 5.9, 2 5.10's, 2 5.11's, 2 5.12's and 1 5.13. Not all the routes have been sent yet, but I am pretty confident of the grades. As the area gets more and more boulder problems and routes I will update the blog.
