Red Letter Day 7C+ by Eric Zschiesche (61)

7 December 2021

Eric Zschiesche has done Red Letter Day (7C+) in Little Cottonwood. Spread over a 2 month period, comprised of 9 different sessions, Zschiesche doggedly kept after it and in practice he actually sent it twice.

The 61-year-old has been actively bouldering since 1977, and his love and passion for the activity is as strong today as at any point in the past. Though the periods of rest between challenging bouldering sessions has increased with time, his overall strength as a boulderer has (thus far) remained largely constant through the decades. Back in 2017, he did his hardest grade-wise, Tiny 8A. This is not considering numerous highballs before and after the invention of bouldering pads. As far as training Zschiesche principally boulderers outdoors, though he doesn't consider it training. : ) He also has a home bouldering cave and a great bouldering gym The Front in Ogden, Utah that he occasions for some plastic homework.
