People Places and Psych

I feel incredibly fortunate to have met and climbed with some of the most elite climbers in Colorado since I have moved here, Although they are all amazing and I am always psyched to get out with everyone, But the two most inspiring people I am blessed to climb with are Megan Mascarenas and Her mom Staci. I am so inspired by 14 yr old Megan not only is she crushing in the comp circuit but she has been CRUSHING outside for the past year! I met Megan at Mt Evans Area A last year and in two weekends she sent her first V11 Mirrormask which I was there for! Staci Megans mom is also an amazing woman not only does she crush and have 4 amazing children and 3 Grand children (all climbers) But I am inspired by Her and Bills Dedication to Megans climbing, every time we go out either for the day or for the weekend Staci Is there with us Climbing and carrying a pad and Bill is right there with his backpack carrying food, water and always there taking Video and Pictures of Megan. This past weekend Staci, Bill and Megan came out Camping and climbing with us at Mt Evans Area A first time back for them this season We showed up Friday afternoon set up camp and ate some food, next thing we know Gregory and Chris are talking about night climbing and with Megans Psych so High there is no hesitation with Staci and Bill over going out and Venturing into the dark to get in a good-temps session. the 6 of us and two dogs head out from our campsite into the boulder field starting the night out at the Ladder a classic warm up area in the beginning of Area A after doing a few laps and variations we head straight up to the Dali wall, Here Megan did an amazing ascent of the Dali stand using a two finger 1/3 pad hold to get to the sloper rail and then an adventurous down climb in the dark! Gregory soon after sending the Dali Sit V9, after I blew out of that same pocket getting a gnarly blood blister on my middle digit we moved down to Seurat an amazingly  aesthetic climb with lay-backs up a fine finger crack After only giving it a few goes Megan got a Midnight Ascent of Seurat!!!! an amazing night of climbing and camping in the morning we spent most of our time at bierstadt and Public execution both V10’s no sends yet but they are going to be there climbing tonight and tomorrow morning so Good Luck Megan  I truly don’t know anyone with as much dedication and free spirit as the Mascaranes family and for that I have to thank them for being a part of our lives and hope to spent many more years climbing and partying with these amazing people and all of my other friends!!!!!!! Thanks to you all for keeping up motivation!!!!

Great Barrington/ Western, MA~ a video i put together last year there are a few mistakes in the video But, what can i say I was born with the wrong chromosome! :)

The Problem in the Video The Echo V8 What Chris did in the Video was a low start on Crispy Cream V7. And Kim Novak V9 is a sit start. Chris went back and did it but I don’t want anyone to be misinformed since I can no longer edit this video since i lost the footage. I want to also Thank Gregory Locker for the corrections.
