With only 9 days left, the pressure is ON at the Wolverineland, and with prime conditions, things are going down with the quickness.
In this video, Nalle Hukkataival makes a 2nd try ascent of The Exfoliator, ~8B, making it look like 7A or so, and then powers his way through Evil Backwards, ~8B+, while Jon Cardwell makes a super solid looking ascent of the "lurpy" The Great war for civilisation, hard 8B.
The boys are planning to make at least one video a day or every other day until the area closes for the season, and then premiere a classic one on the last day, making interviews with everyone at the boulders.
This is hardly the end of the season for the Rockies however, with conditions getting prime at Joe's valley, LCC, RMNP, City of Rocks and finally Boulder canyon... it goes on and on.
The plan for the immediate future is to go and try Warrior up, 8C.
