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. Eldo is now my home away from home. I usually climb trad or solo and like longer routes best, but I also occasionally climb aid or sport. I don't generally boulder.

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...

Stef gets started into Quicksilver in July 2013.  Stef jams into the upper portion of the first (extended) pitch of Obe Wan Canobe in July, 2013.  I asked her if she thought the pitch was mellow too.  She said it wasn't and showed me the finger injury she sustained.  The left-side layback that immediately follows the right.  Stef hits the right-side first layback mentioned in the book, July 2013.
