Tomorrow I will be heading to Upper Chaos in RMNP to try and finish off Jade. I'm not sure anyone has ventured that far up the canyon this year, so we'll see how it goes. It could be perfect up there, and it could be completely miserable. Trust me, the whole experience will be well documented. Here's a video I posted to Vimeo a few weeks ago of some attempts I had on the boulder in the fall. It felt surprisingly easy and I thought it was in the bag until...well, just watch the video. Following that particular outing, the season abruptly ended. Considering how I've been feeling on real rock recently, and if conditions and skin hold up, I feel confident that it could go down very quickly. Or it could take all summer. Who really knows? The important thing is that, I AM FUCKING PSYCHED!
