A few weeks ago, I had a chance to check out the bouldering at Morrison in Colorado. It was an unusually gray and cloudy day, so I didn’t get many pictures, but I did want to write up my mini summary of the area. First off, Morrison is the kind of bouldering area where you […]
Lynn Hill has sent Chablanke (V11/V12) in Hueco Tanks, Texas making this the 7th female ascent of the problem. While it’s always to great to hear about strong sends from young(er) climbers, I’m always most impressed with news from climbers past the age of 40. I suppose it’s because as I get older I gain […]
Somewhat of an older video (the ascent was in April of 2008), but great footage nonetheless – Dave Graham on the first ascent of The Island (V15) at Coquibus Rumont, Fontainebleu (via TubeGuide).
Recently I had a brief Twitter discussion with @WasatchGirl who is currently on an extended climbing trip. She was in Boone and wondering if there was any printed guidebook available.

Honestly, I was hoping some of the book’s most vocal detractors would show up for an open debate (hopefully more entertaining than the VP debate happening simultaneously), but there was a relatively […]
Some breaking news – Twitter user @yozyozyoz from Tokyo reports to All Climbing that Japanese climber Akito Matsushima repeated Memento (8C+/V16).
Following yesterday’s post on Chris Sharma sending Jumbo Love, I stumbled on a video of Sharma bouldering in the Ozarks (via VideoClimb.com).
While the “top X” of anything can be heartily debated, take a look at this clip from The Top 20 Classic Boulder Problems of North America released last year by Flashed Climbing and Rock & Ice. Over 500 top climbers were asked to name the most classic boulder problems in North America. This is a […]
As I mentioned in my last post, we moved to Colorado this week and I was obviously excited about all the new climbing opportunities in my backyard. In my rush to get on some rock, I ignored the fact that my body was exhausted from all the packing, driving, unpacking, and moving around of heavy […]
