Spring Break ‘09 Pt. 2: Rocktown Pt. 1

Spring Break ‘09 Pt. 2: Rocktown Pt. 1

If you ask most people to identify one classic problem in Rocktown, GA, The Orb would probably be it. One of the first problems you come across on the approach to the boulders, The Orb climbs out the underbelly of a very unique looking boulder using a series of cool holds. It also happens to hold the very attainable grade of V8. Needless to say, it didn’t take very long for our crew (minus yours truly) to begin throwing down attempts shortly after we arrived at the boulders.

Last week I posted a short list of problems I wanted to send, but a combination of lack of enthusiam, lack of strength and lack of skin combined to prevent me from sending any of the problems

Nameless Arete

Nameless Arete

The so-called Nameless Arete (V4) at Governor Dodge is one of those problems that can be really frustrating. Based on its grade it shouldn’t be that hard (in the grand scheme of things). However, it requires a certain amount of subtlety and refinement of beta that can be hard to figure out. Especially for me…

What A Difference A Week Makes

What A Difference A Week Makes

Two weekends ago I was out at Governor Dodge pulling down on sandstone boulder problems in a t-shirt.  Conditions really could not have been much better.  At the time, I knew that the bouldering season would probably be over soon, but I had hopes that winter would hold off a bit longer.  Unfortunately for me, […]
