The Adopt-a-Crag event in Eldo this saturday went really well... 20+ people showed up in the rain/snow to slog 2' and 3' sections of railroad ties from the road up to and beyond the talus field below rincon(sounds like fun eh?). With 20 people, we built some stairs and staged 40-something of these sections of wood to build a staircase there. I dare say that a good time was had by all - plus the Access Fund hooked everyone up with smartwool socks, water bottles, and cliff bars. It's all about the schwag, as one participant said.
Afterwards people ajourned and then returned to climbingboulder.com
world headquarters for some bbq, burritos, and beer, thanks to ACE, Qdoba's, and Mountain Sun. Of course since 20 people can't finish a keg, we've been buying bags of ice and drinking like fish for the last couple of days. Nothin like drinking a couple of pitchers of FREE Colorado Kind while watches Band of Brothers on HBO. If anyone wants to come by for Monday Night Football and a few beers... the invitation's open.
