Description

I was looking for a quick morning out to climb before the NFL Conference Championship games and was lucky enough to join Nick and Matt.  We each got several laps in at the Pumphouse Falls in Vail, Colorado.  I thought the climbing was sustained WI3+ with short sections of WI4.  We had the climb to ourselves all morning and left at 1:00 pm to get home but still ran into some I-70 traffic.
