The issue can be expanded to brushing. Doesn't that eventually smoothen the rock. It is espacially so on rock that isn't as hard as granite. Then there is the use of chalk, eventually the rock is going to get sooo caked up with the stuff, it'll be like climbing on marble (or those damn so-ill bulb h...

The Squamish Select has some bouldering. It might suffice depending on how much bouldering to want to do. But, yes. There is another guidebook dedicated to only bouldering. However, that guidebook is quite old and a new book is in the works.

That difference plus everyone elses excess shares gave them the total number of shares they were going to split ...

I sport climbing is spectacular. In the areas that I have been too the bouldering did not look to impresive/enticing. The best parts of Kalymnos (aside from the steep climbs) are the hospitality and the food.

wet or not, imo, i dont think bolts are the answer! what about U Wall? and all those other hard free climbs which rarely get attempted due to the wet starts!! it makes an ascent all the more meaningful. and keeps the crowds away. bolt it and they will come!! Brendan. Looks to me like you were sayin...

CH Coquitlam because there is lots of room, on the way home from work and close to school.

Sometimes the Hangout when I'm bored with the bouldering at Coquitlam.

If you boulder, the season is just getting good. Yes. There will be a a bit of a break when the rains show up, but once it freezes, its prime sending time. Similarly if you ice climb. Right about now you're dry tooling the backside of the Kacodemon boulder. Then there are road trips down south. Its ...
