moderate newness & funness
June 10, 2007: Matt Karasik on Back Door Out of Life, Eldorado Mountain, CO. Good crimps, pinches and pockets - on rock that was meant to be climbed - that allow for interesting yet mellow moves up to a monster jug finish at 16-17 feet. Good for warming or warming down, moving fluidly over rock is almost always underrated AND often forgotten in our numbers-obsessed minds and climbing culture. Oh, and on the other side of this block is one of top 25 lines I've ever seen anywhere. I'll leave to the film makers for Rocky Mountain Highball to blow your mind with that one.
