 The Rocktoberfest is an amazing celebration at an equally amazing climbing area held to raise funds to purchase crags.  There was a great turnout with many psyched climbers all sharing there love for the sport.  Black Diamod and Sterling were out representing and showing there support to help keep the Red open for us all to enjoy.   The activities were endless with movies, jousting, slideshows, clinics, food and my favorite beer.  Here are a few pics of the fun that was had!!!

The Red

I have been in Kentucky for about 2 weeks now.  The weather started out very hot with highs in the 90's, however, the last few days have been very nice and it looks like the heat has past.  This place is incredible with perfect rock, perfect grips, and perfect movement.  I dont know how it could get any better than this.  The last week I started working at Miguels, which has been great the people are all super nice and motivated.  It seems like everyone is psyched and it is instilling a vibe that can only push everyone to climb there best.

At first I tried to just keep to the Undertow wall which is so stacked with classics it is unbelievable.  I figured that would be the best way to get fit and help me stay psyched while waiting for the better temps.  I feel good now and have done a few of the cave routes and some fun onsights at the Undertow.  The problem now is that I need to make the next step in fitness to do my project and I hope I have the juice.   Well I am out got to do some climbing and the psych is supa high(I hope it is not all coffee buzz).  I will leave ya with a few pics from the trip so far enjoy. 

The classic OW area I have not been to Vedauwoo.  Another day I hope

Nebraska is the most HEINOUS drive ever.  One road and zero hills=boring 

There are a bunch of weird lakes by the road though??

The first hotel room I have ever bought but 15 hours of driving warrants a room

Cool bridge over the M-i-s-s-i-s-s-i-p-p-i or I think this is the one
