Dave Graham on Ali Nomad (5.14b)


The Ali Nomad 5.14b, First Ascent in Clear Creek Canyon from Jon Cardwell on Vimeo.

Dave Graham makes the first ascent of Ali Nomad (5.14b), a hybrid boulder/route in Clear Creek Canyon, in April 2011. Here's what Graham says about the route: "Very sick little route!! Starts on Off the Books, then climbs out Freak with the huge move at the end. Did the bottom boulder pretty quickly, then warmed up more trying Freak, then did the link first try. Jon's vision, inspired by the Spanish master ANDRADA!!!! Feels great to be on a rope again!"
