Re: This might be a good place for Louisville boulderers

i wasn't trying to be a dick. the Louisville 'bouldering' is really a testament to the draw of climbing. not something i'm interested in, but its cool as shit someone took the time to do it. and just to clarify... there's no way i could do Lost and Found. v4 is the end of the road for me. i do appre...

Re: Top Routes for the Grade at the RRG

i've raved about 95% of the routes i've done (PERFECT!, BRILLIANT!, etc) so i've got nothing but surplus when it comes to list-making. that said, the following routes stood out to me: 11 > Yellow Brick Road - overhead press to facilitate going up? yes. more please. 12 > Wildfire - your eyes tell you...
