Alright, haven’t posted in a while so I’m just going to see if I can put everything in one big post.
First off, I went to Yellowstone over Memorial weekend. Didn’t get any bouldering in, but I took some photos that turned out ok so I though I’d share:
In between bouts of rain and roped climbing, I’ve managed to get out bouldering a bunch. Spent a few days at Whiskey developing, climbing established obscurities, and taking photos/vids:
Also, made it out to Yankee Jim for a few days doing the same. Have some good video of some excellent new problems right in the heart of the Locomotives (about 50ft from Gigarete), but I’ve got a couple more to finish up then I’ll post up video of them all. Also, Ho and I found a nice little valley of boulders in Yankee Jim that are only about 10 minutes from the road. Not gonna be another Locomotives, but it should produce at least a few good ones. Should be more on that in the future as well.
Lastly, not bouldering related, the Bozeman area has two new 5.13’s, put up by the usual suspects – Jeff Ho and Kyle Vassilopoulos. Jeff did “Swamp Thing” (mid 13) a line he bolted last year at the Swamp in Hyalite. Kyle did “Vincent” (5.13d) a long standing project at Frog Rock. Nice work guys!
