More information:
Hailing from San Diego, CA I've been climbing for 5 going on 6 years now. It wasn't until this previous Fall at the U of M Twin Cities (Senior this year) that I began making friends with climbers who session boulders and cliffs on a weekly basis. Now that I'm in a cragging crew, this summer's been a time of exploration and expansion beyond gyms/toprope towards new and sometimes terrifying disciplines of climbing. Discovering Louisville Swamp bouldering (thanks to and its users) has totally transformed my summer, leaving us Bloomington kids with a place to call "home crag". Basically, a giant chunk of granite inspired me to create a mountainproject profile as well as to make beta contributions for the Twin Cities climbing community. Pretty stoked to say the least. Be active, be respectful of the land, and get out there while the weather's good!

Looking up at White Noise (left) and Daily Grind (right) on a crisp October morning.  A bit of beta. good hunting  Each line shows general area (within  one foot) of hands on Pocket of Pain. Freely use any hold in reach of the pocket during a sit start.    RED is V3 BLUE is V4 (some have suggested V5 for the right variation)  Brazil can be spelled with both an S or a Z, making it fun to randomly switch between the two.  A slightly more artistic perspective
