90 degrees and rising

With no transition, summer arrived in NC. 90 degrees yesterday and hours of bushwhacking made for a miserable day. We found one gem on the creek and some other promising roofs, but good luck, this is full on jungle warfare bouldering.

Deer Crack

In Raheem's back yard lurk many large boulders. Many are choss. Others, like this one, are bullet. We were out searching and followed some deer to this spot. We cleaned and climbed several lines. Here's a V4+ / bass inspired video of the beautiful crack line. WoOT!

Climbing With tEh Ropz

Whattap dabbers?!?!

So, bouldering season is winding down for me. And for the first time I think I am going to try and put some serious effort into some sport-styley climbing. There seems to be a good bit of quality sport areas down in the southeast. I never really had the motivation to check them out until now. PSYCHED!

Currently, I've only checked out Foster Falls and SandRock, located in Jasper/TN and Centre/AL, respectively. Here is a shot from Foster Falls, really aesthetic area. The waterfall was raging due to the rain we've been getting lately and the river runs down a small valley alongside the cliffband. Vur Nice!

Here's a route called "Ethnic Cleansing". Super cool problem, I'm sure all yous-guys would be psyched on it / crush it. Has some bouldery moves for sure, even a jump out of a roof to a jug seam! Blind toss for me, yay-er! So much fun. Will have more pictures up on flickr soon. Hope all is well out there!

*EDIT - Foster Falls Set for a few more shots, with notes.*

Whattup Dabbers?!?!

Here's a short vid from a day out at HP40. I think from sometime late Jan. or early Feb.? Some of you met Mr. John Hur when we were at LRC this past southtronic trip.

Well, here he is crushing Slider, an HP40 classic. Yay-er!!
