Jay Knower Slideshow At Devil’s Lake

On Saturday, July 5th Wisconsin climber Jay Knower will be giving a slideshow at Wheeler’s campground near Devil’s Lake State Park.  Among other things, Jay is known for being one of only a few Wisconsin climbers to have climbed 5.14.  As usual, I cannot make it.

Reel Rock Film Tour Coming To An Area Near You

The 3rd annual Reel Rock Film Tour is coming to an area near you.  If you live in places like California or Colorado this is nothing new to you.  However, for the first time the tour will also be visiting those of us who live in Wisconsin.  They will be at the REI in Brookfield at 6:30 pm on Tuesday October 21st.  Tickets are $5.  Somewhat surprisingly they are going to attempt to have the show outdoors near the end of October.  Should be interesting.

Guide To Choss

The aptly named Splitter Choss Blog has a helpful guide to the different kinds of choss one might come across when searching for new rock.  I think the rock at Governor Dodge probably falls somewhere between Chunky and Sucker.
