Isabelle Faus has had a pretty good summer. After doing the first ascent of a new V14 highball at the beginning of the season, Faus then turned her attention to Griffin Whiteside’s popular new rig, Creme de la Crumb, up at Mt. Evans.

The problem seemed like it became the boulder to climb for a couple weeks: Drew Ruana, Daniel Woods, Sam Weir and Pablo Hammack repeated it, while other climbers like Shawn Raboutou got close.

With a storm engulfing much of Colorado, alpine bouldering season could come to an abrupt end—but who knows what Faus has in store for the lower-elevation blocs around Colorado as Sendtember kicks into gear.
