I am going to Asheville for a weekend in late February and (weather permitting) was hoping to do some bouldering. I'm still pretty new to the sport and was looking for a good spot with anything v0-v3ish. Thanks! McKenzie Zimmerman

Check out the Upstate Bouldering Guide and Southern Appalachian Bouldering for other great spots near Asheville,Rumbling Bald, Western NC and upstate SC! The Bald has very limited parking and fills up fast on the weekends in February, so having other options if you want to boulder and cant get there that early is a must!

if the weather sucks try the climb max gym on amboy road(personal favorite) or the location down town which is less roped climbing and more bouldering Kyle Cobbler

The Bald is probably your best bet. It has the best concentration of moderates in the area. The Ladder/Cave Boulder, and the Trailside Area have a good selection in those grades and if you want to make it to the Eastside, get someone to take you because those trails are hard to follow sometimes. Like above, get there early, even before 9 if you can, and try to park close to the car next to you. Also fill out a trail registration tag which is nbd, but the park service requires it. Have fun!

I'll add that if you cant get to the Bald that early, then you can head to the Buffalo Creek Boulders about 30 minutes from the Bald or to one of many different Pisgah bouldering areas in less than an hour (North Side, Nose Boulders, East Face Boulders, Nowhere Boulders, Pilot Rock Boulders, and Stony Bald are the main spots with several smaller spots hidden in the forest). Corner Rock is also 30 minutes or so from Asheville, but you wont find much in the grade range you're looking for. Happy pebble wrastlin'! Brad Caldwell
