Trailer and Druthers Tour

After a costume filled evening I met up Saturday morning with a psyched crew and headed out for a tour of a couple lower elevation zones in the Boulder Batholith...the Trailer Boulders and the Druthers.

Ari, Kevin M, Kyle and I made the brief walk into the main Trailer Boulders, on the way in I showed off the two sporadic overhanging prows...both seemed to inspire and help build psyche for the day, and perhaps the area in general...after a quick walking tour of the main Trailers, we jumped on a handful of established moderates, Misty was well received, The Aristocrat saw a round of sends, and a new overhang was cleaned up and quickly sent.

After about 8 or so problems we jumped on the proper(project) start to an unnamed problem Ron put up last season. Previously a stand start from the cobble up and right of Kyle.



Kyle made great progress on the start, deciphering all the moves. A send can't be far away...pretty damn cool.

We then ventured back towards the rigs, meeting up with Brady, Briton, Hutch and kids...we checked out the more reasonable of the sporadic overhangs, and then walked out to the Druthers.




We did a brief tour and then wound down the day at central boulder in the Druthers...seeing how feasible the finish of the super-proj is...





Impressive goes on a problem with few features...new beta was used on the initial toss and Kevin even made a go for the lip. Good stuff, but deemed mega hard...


Overall a super fun day showing off a couple zones to new eyes. Hope to be out again soon.

Cheers!

A little surprised that y'all beat us back to the vehicles that day--I think that the kids like the walk to the Druthers from the "old" way better:-)

We took a combo of old and new on the way back...not a bad route...perhaps the preferred...
