We reset the River!

The New Right River

Jake, Danny, Connor, Ian, and I stripped and reset the full River this week.  Joel was at orientation for his other job and Lily is in Rifle.  Despite a few minor epics (a majorly stuck hold, patching a spot on the wall, etc…) we managed to get a ton of new problems up over Tuesday and Wednesday. Part of the reset involves the…

…Two New Volumes from Flashed Climbing!

We got two new volumes from Flashed! These are some of the first volumes Flashed has produced, and since Ian and I are both Flashed Athletes we’re lucky enough to get to try them out.

Here’s the other, it’s called the Speaker Box:

The Speaker Box

The Speaker Box after the first day’s set. There are more holds on it now.

These volumes are a bit different in most in that you can take panels off while the volume is on the wall, and you can put holds on any of the connecting points for panels because they are connected with the same size bolt and t-nut as we use for climbing holds. You can also drill new holes easily and put new t-nuts pretty much wherever you want them.

Another angle of the first volume.

The idea is that the volume can be easily assembled/disassembled so you can put them up in pieces and so stuck holds can be fixed without taking the whole volume off the wall. You can take individual panels off to get at the problem spot or to take the problem-panel off and fix it before putting it back on the wall. There is a mounting plate for the wall that the volume bolts on to, so attaching it should be fairly easy IF you don’t bend the frame, like we did with the Speaker Box. We sorted it out eventually…just one more benefit of our sculpted walls at The Spot. We got ’em up though, and we set all over them. Check ’em out and let us know what you think!

Also, if you’re looking for a great alpine bouldering pad, the Ninja is my favorite because it’s a nice midsize pad with a fantastic carrying system. Check it out here: Flashed / Mats / Ninja

I’m going to be out of town for the next few weeks for the Tradeshow and a few other things, but the boys and Lily will be around and setting on our regular schedule. Next week is Left Dojo!
