I haven't bouldered seriously for years, in favor of roped routes.

But Scott and I were walking in the woods and came across a few short, juggy beauties.

I couldn't help it! Hey, I know I'm not all V12 'n' shet, but I'm always up for a share.

Show me yours!

Thanks Ryan!

As you can see, since we can't crank the Gnar, especially with walking shoes, I just try to get a little artsy fartsy.
Still fun though.

Cool stuff Survival, for me bouldering is about having fun, enjoying movements on the stone & being outside. Sometimes alone, sometimes with others. I like your pics, creative. Hopefully we'll see more from you & others here :-)

pull in, setup camp, check the thunderstorm status... go for a "warm up" solo...

ah the memories...

at that point the entire visual field was a tiny point of light far off in the distance... with the universe starting to spin about it...

Jaybro,

where is University of Mars? that was one of the few remaining boulder problems that I really wanted to climb out in Vedauwoo this season....but I had no idea where it was.
I wanted to develop a huge one-day circuit of Vedauwoo roof crack boulder problems: Spin To Win, Nat's Roof, Beer Crack, Biggest Tits..., Life Without Parole, Desiderata, etc...however, a bunch of stuff I just never found.

I've been bouldering 2-3 times a week on rock for about 6 months, in idyllwild then the high Sierra and now bishop. Took a few weeks off when I was pretending to be a runner, but almost always by myself, with my wee pad and water bottle and head phones.

Got a job so been waking up and climbing pre-sunrise to get a session in the happies. It's been surreal to see this magical area during the most beautiful parts of the day and experience the climbs truly solo - I'll get frustrated and ask Ruppel beta (thanks bro!) or check youtube, but it's fulfilling to know when I topped a problem that it was an experience I owned absolute.

The feeling I get when on big ridge scrambles, or trying to solo a wall, or before the sun warms the volcanic pockets...I'm drawn to it because i know that I did it.

At the end of the day the only interpretation of the experience was mine, and like reading a book but never seeing the movie my imagination runs wild.

The harder problems feel like slaying the Dragon and I'm often left bruised and defeated under their girthy undersides.... But for some reason I love it.

Mid-afternoon from a rare visiting friend, part of a beautiful set of pictures she took on a bad ass road trip:

Took the gear for a walk but it was kind of soggy so we just decided to work the sh#t outta this project up in the little smoke bluffs instead that we have dubbed "blunt arte" due to its bluntness & proximity to the neo classic RyanD stoner problem called roaches corner. We slapped & crimped & hucked our little hearts out but it's still there waiting for someone with the smooth moves.

The left arete is still a project.



Edit- Justin, just saw ur comment above.

Viper is probably the most popular v5 in Squamish, despite being only 2 moves. The one tagged brownie @ the wheel is a neo classic called "no holds barred" & it's fukking badass! Burly underclings & kneebars then a reach to the arte, finishes up the high arte. My pic does it no justice, clocks in at v6 they say but damn it feels hard!!! Really want to do it this summer!

Sorry if this is a kooky question but do have to scrub the whole boulder? That first one looks sparkly clean.
Here, if there's any moss it's been baked so hard you could use it for feet.

On La Barrosa, we have something like 500 established problems and lots of potential for more and harder stuff.

It's pretty big time out here in Colorado. Even an entire guidebook for areas below tree-line in RMNP and Mt. Evans. The modern Colorado boulderer is pretty motivated. The hike to the highest portions of Chaos Canyon can be 2-3+ hours! If only these guys were that psyched on standard alpine climbing... Maybe it's good that they are not though.

Sick stuff altieboo!

Props on ur send of Luminance u posted a ways back too. My friend Charlie did the second or third of that one. I gave him a spot & it was terrifying, he made me build a gear anchor & I had to lean out over the pit ready to tension swing into a body check to knock him down in the pads if he popped, lol luckily he hiked it cause it was free send day.

Incredible, harrowing line that one is.

So a few people have commented on some of my shots about the moss or cleaning process so here's some pics of the process to give you a bit of an idea about developing boulders around here.


So this face has 2 classic lines apparently, first climbed in 97 I think. Anyways we wanted to do them but it looked like they had gotten a little scruffy.

We cleaned it properly so the moss would not grow back, it also yielded 2 fun new problems. A easy but very high arte up the elephant trunk on the right & a fun high slab around the corner. Fun!


Then we got on this.

I figured someone like you would say something like that Randisi & I could see how from a different perspective it could seem inappropriate. All I really can say is that you should come climb here and check out the forest and the treasures buried beneath the jungle.

C'mon, it always grows back up here. If I didn't scrub it every few months, the top of my backyard boulder would have a growth that thick within 2 years.

Hey flip flop easy bud, have you ever climbed here? What do you know about local ethics and history of bouldering in Squamish? Have you done FAs here which required no cleaning?


People had asked me how we deal with the moss so I posted about it. This is how things are done here, It's a nice fantasy to think you can walk into a rainforest and find gleaming cubes of granite all ready to climb but that's not how it goes down. You guys should see the efforts that go into development for cragging and multipitch up this way, your fukkin head would probably explode.

As mentioned, come climb here. I'll even give you the tour, then form your opinion.




if you don't like it.


well........

It's amazing what the combination of an almost total lack of annual precipitation mixed with dry desert air can do with respect to cleaning moss and lichens off of boulders.

You could answer my questions flip flop, or you could carry on with grossly exaggerated, built for anonymous Internet forum user type assumptions like you seem to like to do. I was trying to be cool about it but you just want to speculate on something you know nothing about and call names?


Or you could post some climbing content on the climbing thread rather than making your first posts here inflammatory and trying to start an argument.


I'd be interested in a conversation or hearing how you develop boulder problems, but if that is how you want to be about then you can eat a giant bag of dicks.


You don't know sh#t about climbing up here.

I could make a wild assumption like you and say you don't know sh#t about climbing at all. My hunch is you have probably never developed a bouldering area or made contributions in the way of new routing at all, anywhere. But I don't know you so speculation like that just wouldn't be fair.


Anyways i'm going to go climbing now.

this type of cleaning happens in many coastal environments. We have lots of moss at most of my local bouldering spots. Lots of hard work to clean, but there are no baby bunnies getting slaughtered, or salamanders or rare plants or epiphytes, only.......MOSS.

It just doesn't grow back as quick as in BC. :)

Sandal enviro Truckee bro bra no likely da clean rock mon.

crossfit makes you be able to climb harder than 5.10, VO, so encouraging them to do it will only make them climb harder things, with more cleaning.

OG stonededmaster know that the Indians used ALL the moss for crashpads whilst bouldeing like a primal animal with huge testicles swinging in the breeze.

Ryan, little known fact but if you buy $500 worth of Pattagucci super enviro conscious gear, your sins are automatically absolved.

I figure I get about 10 permadraws or one chipped pocket for every "Live Simply" organic hand woven by native princesses tshirts I buy.

In any case, bouldering with dudes in the woods shirtless in jeans is...

...pretty frickin gay.

Probably no more shots of anyone scrubbing moss actually. We are not ready.






But I have been bouldering a bunch. So maybe we can get back on track.

I think its terrible that you are removing moss and lichen just so you can swagger up some piece of rock. Also you are leaving pieces of rubber (probably full of BPA, gasp) all over the rock, and trampling multiple pieces of vegetation, killing countless microbes in the process. I think you should just go home and shoot yourself.

Meanwhile we live in the desert where nothing is alive anyway so we dont have to clean the rocks to climb them. Here is a picture of jamie swaggering her way up a quartzite roof that is rather fun.

HA, you f*#king moss killers. Flip, you realize that's their local ethic that is essential for climbing up there? Have no fear, once our species is extinct that moss will grow back in a couple years. I really hope you don't ski any of those resorts in Tahoe, those trees didn't fall down on their own.

Sick pics Ryan, that V4 that Relic is on looks perfect.
