Tom wish I could make it as we are going to have to work on Labor day Weekend. I will put it on the BHSU website though and maybe some students can make the trek. Also may try to make a trip up there during Rally week which is the first week in August. It sure was fun last year and anyone that is into bouldering will be blown away by the unbelievable amount of huge granite nugs scattered in the forest.

Random stuff found while not finding whiskey gultch. Climbable rock seems to be everwhere. and for those that love cracks many of boulders have splitter cracks.
