Bryan Vansickle on the second ascent of CMT at The Source, Wyoming. The approaching storm soaked us a few minutes after the shot was taken and we didn't get any more problems in this area.

We also made a two day trip from Lander to Dubois, Wyoming to visit some of the fantastic boulders I discovered there years ago. We spent both days around 10,000 feet at Pilot Knob and were very disappointed by poor temps. The boulder field heated into the 80's and made for lethargic outings. Then, waiting for good evening temps we were rained out every day. It was too bad, as we were very motivated to put up some harder lines there. Maybe in the fall if it doesn't snow early.

During some of the hotter or rainy days we drove back roads and looked for new rock. We looked for rock in the Laramie area hoping to find additional summer bouldering. I've known about several good summer bouldering areas on the Wyoming/Colorado border for a few years now, but have not given any directions or specifics because of previous chalk being found in some areas. Those areas are obviously secret and will be kept that way since they are not completely my finds. I only mention it here to encourage people to get out and find new rock. There is a lot of rock in the Rocky Mountain Region! Exploring for new rock is something I like to do as much as bouldering and it is equally rewarding. Some possible finds for the exploring boulderer:
