Photo Gallery: 8 Winter Project Photos, Submitted by Our Readers

Sam Cody

Sometimes the best winter projects are in Spain. Here, Frederica Balzer works Moon Safari (5.13a) in Chulilla. 

Violet Navarette Collection

Violet Navarette pushing through the Sour Pain (5.11b) in Red Rock Canyon. 

Matt Carroll Collection

My project is The Antidote (5.13a), a vicious, vert tech route on the Earwax Wall at Index, Washington. 

Jacob Cook

Alix Morris will be spending her winter climbing in the Owens River Gorge in preparation for another attempt at the Freerider (VI 5.13a) in
a day. 

Morgan Schneider

Little Buckaroo (5.11b) is a short route at Wild Iris that’s perfect for someone who boulders, but was trying to sport climb.

Jesse Sklut Collection

Jesse Sklut eyes up the long V5 sequence and final deadpoint capping the crux of Whipped Cream at the Slab in Colorado’s Flatirons. 

Billy Simek

Lee Smith works The Nothing, which may be the least done 5.14a in the Red River Gorge because of its crack boulder-problem start and comp-style climbing above.

Thomas Addison

Endless Bummer (5.13b), with Jimi T climbing it, is on my winter to-do list, but the real project is Lolita (5.14a/b), the Jailbait (5.13c) extension at Jailhouse.

With cooler temps comes increased friction, which makes winter as good (or better) for try-hard projecting as any other time of the year. From The Red River Gorge and Colorado’s Flatirons to Wild Iris and even across the pond to Spain, our readers shared these photos of their winter goal routes.
