Edelweiss athlete, Joe Mills has been getting after it in the Black Canyon. In this video, Joe shares his successes and trials on a 30-year old aid route he's working to free.
"For Joe Mills, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is a special place that offers something hard to find these days...a true adventure. In 2010, Joe climbed for the first time in The Black and quickly realized there was potential for new, harder routes. With the plums already picked, Joe sets his eyes on being the first to free an old aid line that hasn't been climbed in 30 years; a 13 pitch route with the final pitch being a 40 foot roof most likely going at 5.14, "a dream pitch" in Joe's eyes."
