Nice rock huh? Sat on it seven days before you did! Powerful mountain--the rock of dreams. (I also spent a week in Birmingham (Irondale) a week and a half before going to Colorado.)
Yes it is! That was my third attempt on Long's Peak, the other two having been aborted because of winter storms. I finally had to take the slightly woosy way and do it in the summer, but hey it's still climbing. ;)
Irondale? Bless your heart. Bham can be fun though. Did you make it out to Oak Mountain? Some decent bouldering around there (so I'm told anyway).
Unfortunately I didn’t get out during my stay. One of the guys that I was with did say something about a state park nearby. I am going back in a week and a half (Mar 17). I doubt that I will be able to do much exploring this time either. I will be sure to find out more. It’s a possibility that I might be moving down there next fall.
