Comments: No worries, as long as everyone is getting out there and getting psyched on climbing, I'm happy. I learned to climb at Rotary, so maybe I'm just particular/anal/protective of it (and Meditation Roof was the first "real" problem I ever sent, haha).

Comments: Jason, ok, I get where you're coming from on that. I think that this is an alternate start to the Meditation Roof problem though.

Comments: I love winter bouldering at Horsetooth Reservoir. It's always accessible, and generally if it's sunny the temperature isn't an issue.

Comments: I'll have to try that. I've used that hold as an intermediary thumb catch on the way to the RH sidepull but have never gone up from it.
