Back up the canyon this morning in semi-arctic conditions. A real thrash across the river ferrying three full size pads and two accessory pads. Owing to cool temps and brisk wind I took forever to warm up. On the lower section, I discovered that the heelhook beta for the crux move seems pretty essential now that the right hand edge/pinch has eroded. The first move and the slap for the lip were not really an issue. The new Asana pad was really helpful since it has really hard foam that negates the very uneven landing.
I am starting to compile a bouldering guide to Boulder Canyon at http://bouldercanyonbouldering.blogspot.com/. Please visit as it will be updated on a semi-regular basis and leave your comments or contact me with info.
