If there is one thing in this world I enjoy doing as much as climbing it's art! When I'm not climbing, I'm painting and when I'm not painting, I'm drawing. For the past 8 years I've been creating art for the famous "Psychedelia" at the Spot Bouldering Gym in Boulder, Colorado.
"Psychedelia" is a massive black light climbing competition, the holds get painted florescent and the walls get decked out in tape…everything glows!!! Every year I do a massive piece of tape art for the event and this year was my biggest yet about 15 square feet and 100% made from TAPE, luckily I caught the creation on camera through time lapse.
Just before "Psychedelia" weekend I took down my mega project for the season "European Human Being" V12. I had only tried it several times but every time I went to it I would fall on the last move until I found my double clutch beta and then it was on!
Immediately after the send for filming purposes I got back and repeated the boulder without falling; gave it the good old "bang bang." So psyched to have finally taken this ultimate crimp line down!!! Can't wait for next season.
HUGE THANKS to all my friends who helped me film: David Powell, Patrick Hodge, Wesley Fowler
