Inform and Inspire

Welcome to Upstate Bouldering, designed around bouldering in the Upstate region of South Carolina. This website is intended to inform the reader of local spots in SC, Western NC and Northeast GA, as well as a blog of my experiences climbing at these great spots. I hope everyone learns of a new place to climb or is inspired to climb somewhere close to them. If you have any comments, please send me an e-mail.

This weekend is the first of the 3 Triple Crown Bouldering competitions up in Hound Ears, near Boone and Grandfather Mountain, NC. This is my first year climbing in the comp and seeing Hound Ears, and I'm super psyched...everybody has told me that I'd love it! On Friday evening, the annual fall Carolina Climbers Coalition meeting will take place right next to the campground...here's a copy of the release on the CCC home page. If you're gonna be up there Friday night, stop by and join in the meeting to hear the latest about what's happening in the Carolina's

As Far as Hound Ears goes...I'm really looking forward to meeting some new friends at the comp and hanging out with some old ones (the Clemson Contingent and the Grayson Highlands Crew especially). Also, Matt Paden at Frixtion gives upsome tips for the comp in one of his recent posts. I found them to be helpful and hopefully you will too...click on over to the link and check em out. Besides these tips, I've been getting amped with a few videos.

Here's a video recap of last years Hound Ears comp...


And another recap of last years comp from High Country Adventures...
