More information:
I started climbing as a teen in the Midwest in the 80's... I moved to Boulder County in search of more rock in 1995. The crags around Boulder are now my home away from home. I've gone through periods of time where one particular location or another was my primary area, but as a husband and father, I tend to have a lot less free time now, and so I wander about more. I usually climb trad or solo and like longer routes best, but I also occasionally climb aid or sport.

I once counted and had climbed 800+ routes in Eldorado Canyon (with repeats, it would have been uncountable), 800+ in Boulder Canyon, 600+ in the Flatirons and a few hundred or more each in the SSV, Lumpy Ridge, the South Plate, Vedauvoo and Indian creek. I also like to climb in RMNP and other alpine areas locally and nationally. My favorite road trips are to Joshua Tree - CA(300+ routes), Red Rocks - NV (~200 routes) and my home crag of over a decade ago, Red River Gorge, KY (hundreds, but never counted).
Have loved a few trips to other places - The High Sierra, Sedona, Mt Lemon, Cochise, Squamish, Tahoe, Truckee, City of Rocks, Zion, Black Canyon, Unaweep, Colorado National Monument, Conway, the Bay Area crags, etc...

It does work into an OW at some point... just before the serious overhang ends.  The flaky overhanging start of Party Of One should give any inexperienced trad leader pause... but for the experienced choss-jockey, it's different and fun!  Stuart sits at the base of Party Of One.  It is actually much steeper than it looks.  I'm sure someone can guess.  Tony B. leading the FA of Scheherazade (5.9) at Evan's Overlook.  Evan Deis belays. Oct 2015.
