RC - A climbing NAT-U-REL

Ya so it must run in the family.  The Casey's appear to be climbing naturals:), first Kristin and now Ryan Casey (RC), who got the crash course last weekend.


Day 1: Little Eiger wall at Clear Creek Canyon.  Ryan is introduced via a 5.10a crack, followed by a 130' 5.10c with a large roof bulge.  To round out the day Ryan took on a 5.9+ dihedral, completing the cycle regarding classic features.

Day 2:  Tyrolean traverses leading to the highly diverse granite greatness.  The Sport Park at Boulder Canyon is where we found ourselves on Sunday.  Again Ryan crushed!  Several days after our weekend of climbing with Ryan, I hear he has been dreaming of rock climbing and waking up with sweaty hands:)
