We were not optimistic when we left town yesterday. A wet start led to a brilliant day in the eastern Boulders. Perkins Peak is a real gem.

Good for you boys! And great photos.

Looks like the express lane. Very cool.

I stayed home and worked on my credits, but seeing these pics definitely makes me wish I'd have cashed a few in instead.

Perkins proper is left out of frame and Kent is right out of frame. We went up the left set of tracks and down the right set of tracks:


Looks like there are a couple of sweet lines on the East face of Kent if you hurry:


Awesome day.
