HP 40 Day 2

HP 40 Day 2

Day 2 at HP 40 dawned to more fantastic weather. Despite the Boulderween festivities promised for later in the evening the campground didn’t seem that crowded and the boulders weren’t really crowded either.

HP 40 Day 1

Last weekend, Amy and I took 5 kids from our climbing team for a long weekend to Horse Pens 40 in Alabama. Having been there a few times myself I was really excited for the kids to be able to get a feel for some “real” bouldering. After making the 12 hour drive and getting […]

Horse Pens 40

Horse Pens 40
