New Problems at Keystone: Bouldering and Future Problems

Last week Tara and I made our first trip up the the Keystone boulders for the season. This is a spectacular place, with unprecedented views of Buffalo Mountain and the Summit County valley. Climbing up above the stuff we developed last season, we found another series of gems with hard problems coming out of several cave-like boulders strewn amongst the talus. There is still a ton of undeveloped stuff up here, most of it needing some serious cleaning.
