I’ve climbed in Red Rocks for twenty years and have never seen rain come down so hard. It was like being in a tropical storm on the east coast. In just a few hours the creeks rose up and the water started flowing into town. My phone alerted me through out the day with flash flood warnings in the area.

This morning we went to work in Calico Basin and this is what we viewed. After a few photos we drove through the debris to Red Springs Area. No climbing today as the fragile sandstone needs time to dry out. To make the most of the situation we taught clinics on transitions to the group of AMGA guides.

The weather looks to be sunny and warmer for the next week.
