in the region, in the states? I was recently at Norris Lake with my son and he enjoyed that climbing more than any other type he has tried before, but it is pretty limited there (although I may have missed some good spots around that Lake as I only have been on a small portion of it), did I hear cor...

Belly of the beast jug rest before a short crux, Mirage is a longer route but it is crimpy in the crux and the crux is low on the route, So Long Mr. Petey lay down rest before a short crimpy crux
thanks everyone! any easy bouldering around Estes? or where you suggesting it for the easy trad? because I think my parents (who are meeting us there) want to spend some time in Estes, yea I took him for a surfing trip and one day of climbing in Tahquitz last year that went pretty well, I was more i...
I am going to the Boulder-Denver area for 10 days near the end of June and would like to take my 14 year old son for a day of bouldering and maybe a different day or half day on an easy 2-3 pitch trad route with some scenic exposure, where is the best and lower graded bouldering within a 2-3 hour dr...
graniteclimber you're right my post was lame, I was hoping someone would come up with a better report, I know one of the climbers is Enzo Oddo, as for the one who sent Southern Smoke I had to ask him a couple of times before he would tell me he sent it so if he doesn't feel like spraying then I am n...
some French climbers have been sending hard in the Red, at least one has done Southern Smoke recently (he is not one to spray about himself so I will leave his name off this as I don't know if he would like that) anyone got any better reports on the sending spree from them or others?
Ian, you totally missed my point, we are in agreement about most of what you stated, for the 5.7 climber sending 5.8 is just as big a deal as the 13a climber sending something a bit harder than he(she) ever did before, of course the current ability of the climber has to help define the challenge, wh...
why are grades important: because whether you admit it or not for most of us it is not the beauty of climbing or the aesthetics of the wall or being outside that is most important, it is being able to face a considerable challenge (often physical and mental) and come out of it a better person for ha...

Willy, its okay to chase numbers you can do that and also enjoy climbing those two aren't mutually exclusive, I agree with JR's advice also check out "The self coached climber" by Hague and Hunter and "9 out of 10 climbers make the same mistakes" by Macleod, those are my two favorite training books,...

I suspect if Jonathan Siegrist finishes the Vader project this springl there will be another, if those two if's occur I suspect the Red would have to be the leader in North American 5.15's at one area
