Shelf Road Team Trip!
January 3-5, 2013
Join Team ABC at sunny Shelf Road for three days of fun limestone sport climbing.
Shelf Road has the best concentration of safely bolted sport routes in the state, from 5.easy to 5.12. This area is called the “Banana Belt” of Colorado. Often, when the rest of the state is chilly and covered in snow, Shelf Road is sunny and perfect for climbing.
We will be staying in a local hotel, eating at restaurants and having our breakfasts and lunches made by the yummy Coyote Café.
Cost: $400 per client
3 days of guiding climbing
Transportation to and from Shelf Road
Private room for 2 nights at a local hotel
Dinner at a restaurant both nights
Breakfast and lunch made at the Coyote Café both days

He sent his first V13 only 9 months ago, and now ABC Elite Athlete Michael O’Rourke has done his first V14!
Today, November 11th, 2012, Michael finished off his short-term project when he sent Mirror Reality at Rocky Mountain National Park. Mirror is a Daniel Woods problem that has also been climbed by Jimmy Webb and Paul Robinson.
Nice Job Michael!
Circadian Rhythm was established at and long considered V14, though now it is generally accepted as V13. Elite Team Athlete Michael O’Rourke recently visited the Poudre Canyon for the first time and he managed to send Circadian in only 4 tries. Nice job Michael, very inspiring!
Nice job Michael!
We are proud to congratulate Stefan on his hardest problem and hardest first ascent to date. Nice job Stefan!
Here is a cool video of some new boulder problems put up by Elite Team Athlete Michael O’Rourke. Enjoy!
The new indoor/outdoor Advanced and Advanced Plus teams offer lots of outdoor time. Here are some great photos from their first Saturday of the quarter out on the rocks.
