Comments: Professional photographer Kyle George took some great photos of Carrie Cooper bouldering at Blowhard Bush. Here's a link to the photos on his blog at Surf and Stone

Comments: I can't say I agree with the above poster. While Gurkha may be soft for a 12a other places, I'd say it warrants at least a 12- if not 12b at the Creek. It's considerably harder than Johnny Cat, much harder than either Anunaki or Dos Hermanos, and a tiny bit harder than Six Fingered Man--considered 12a/b. It is a stellar line, and quite different from your standard IC splitter.

Comments: Nice new route! Trust it is an excellent addition to Res Wall. The first ascentionist did a good job of cleaning it--for a brand new climb, there's not a lot of friable rock or sand in it. My buddy and I watched the crux get harder and harder with every burn, though, as one key face hold broke somewhat and another really useful one broke off entirely. The climbing throughout is varied and pretty entertaining. The gear recommendations are good--it can be climbed without a six, but you'll want one... more >>

Comments: Good point. The (ostensibly climber-friendly) landowners at Roadside Crag at the Red River Gorge claimed that the unapproved addition of fixed hardware was one of the biggest reason for their decision to close the Red's most popular crag. Worth considering.

Comments: Protection is good?? Bwahahaha! Yeah, it's excellent until the last 25', which are just above a ledge. Let's be clear, the crack does not go to the top, and it can only be called 5.6 if you finish it from the south side of the ledge as a second pitch or with heinous rope drag. The direct is 5.10+. Excellent outing, nonetheless!

Comments: About a week ago, my climbing partner and I rolled in to the Canyon for the summer. We're pretty curious about the new development that has been going up, but it seems like the new guidebook won't be out until after the end of the summer season. Any chance anybody has some beta on some of the new crags going up like Botany Bay, the Asylum, Darkside, the roof right of Indian Wars, etc.? We were told to look up Lee and Jamie, but haven't run into them yet. Any beta/topos would be much appreciated!... more >>

Comments: Best. sport. crag. in. North. America????


There are some good lines, certainly, but after dropping an honest 100+ kilos of rock off of the established cave routes while climbing over the course of five days, I can hardly call them quality routes. Perhaps a leaf blower and some aggressive dry tooling would clean these up into the five star classics they could have been. Loads of new routing potential remains for more conscientious development, and the excellent routes at Lucha Libre... more >>

Comments: Whoah, chill matey. So there are some overzealous bureaucrats enforcing nonexistent rules--that's hardly surprising. In fact, that's pretty much the norm anywhere the first time the "authorities" encounter climbing. But climbing and bouldering on national park land in Mexico is far from illegal--in fact, it's quite common. La Parque Nacional del Potrero Chico, del Canyon de la Huasteca, del Barranco del Cobre, and many, many more. It just means that now (unfortunately) you have to engage th... more >>
