Frisco Buttress V7 – Frisco, CO
Photo by Jamison Burt
It’s a relatively cool day; I’m nestled in the Aspen trees, over-looking Interstate 70. I sit on my Organic crash pad – in my Vertical Girl Signature Bra, look up at the black and tan rock, and start to visualize each move of the Frisco Buttress. I go through the foot movement and placement. The reason why I haven’t sent this in the past is because my feet would cut at critical moments, and I would swing out violently, making the fall to the ground, the over shadowing back drop in my mind, very scary. As I slip on my SCARPA Vapor S‘, the crux of the problem dissolves, allowing for greater determination and anticipation for the top out. As I climb, the rising confidence in my shoes, the ability to toe down on the small edges, and the friction of sticky rubber, the two crimp moves on the overhanging arete becomes the fun part of the climb, a viable challenge. I topped out, into the aspen grove and exhaled. I finally did my long-standing project. Thanks to SCARPA for creating a flexible, comfortable shoe, that allows for greater sensitivity while still having the air of an aggressive down-turned climbing shoe.
