Amazing that the town of Westby is embracing the bouldering scene, rather than kicking ya'll to the curb. I remember getting many a curious looks back in the early 90s, toting carpet samples instead of crash pads, and trying to climb up these little rocks. Little kids would give me the secret beta about how much easier it is to get up on the back side...

Still, though, way to go Westby.

Yeah a bit surprising. Driving around the town maybe 5 years ago without directions to the bouldering, it became clear that you kind of had to know where to go for the boulders. So we stopped at the "Visitor Info" building (expecting a blank stare from the workers) and lo and behold it was actually on the town pamphlet...

Hey Chris,

FIve years ago? Talk about progressive... Another shard of hope that rock climbing and land owners can be proud of eachother. JJ
