February NC Bouldering

When the CCC decided to have their quarterly meeting at Crowders State Park, we decided to pack up the crash pad and head to the Dixon School boulders Saturday afternoon. Although the temps were in the low 50's, the day was cold and breezy in the shade, making for great friction. This area has some truly quality boulder problems, and we had a blast checking out a lot of the classics. Ask Donovan Craig for details on this area, as he has excellent details on the boulder problems. Hopefully Zachary will post a few pics on the CCC website that he snapped in between crushing. The CCC crew is hard at work trying to maximize our climbing opportunities in the Carolinas- particularly Ghost Town & Sauratown- so if you aren't already a member, it is high time you joined!!

Sunday we broke a Hoffmann record and went bouldering for the second day in a row. This time, we headed to Rumbling Bald's East Side boulders. This area has plenty to do and tends to be fairly uncrowded. Our crew had a blast on classics like The Carolinian and Slave Driver. Cole walked everything and the famous Tippy performed her world famous doggy yoga peeing handstand! The day was considerably warmer, which meant we started in puffy jackets and ended in flops.

Phil and I came home sore, but pumped for spring climbing adventures, and debating braking down and buying a second crashpad for our household. Enjoy Valentine's Day and see you out climbing this weekend. The NC forecast looks great!
