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.

Orangepoint 2011 Competition

This past Saturday, the 2011 Orangepoint Climbing Competition was held by the Clemson Climbing Club and the CORE at the Fike Recereation facility on the campus of Clemson University.

Here you can see the sign up table and Sunrift Adventures table with goodies for sale.

The comp started around 11am with the first 3 hour heat, and the second 3 hour heat started around 2pm.

Getting the comp started!

Competitors could climb as many routes as they wanted to in the 3 hour span, and the highest 5 problems were added up to give them their score. Here's a gallery of the first heat...

I'm still trying to track down the results of the comp...I'll post up the results when I get them.

Here is a copy of what Stephen Scoff, the SC rep of the CCC commented on the website recently...

"Clemson's Orange Point Comp Raises $202 for the CCC
Better than anticipated crowds really brought about some great energy, strong climbers, and a respectable sum for the CCC! I want to thank Michael Lacour, Andrew Brownlow and the entire Clemson Climbing Club for helping bring attention to the CCC and all its efforts.

Hopefully by next year’s comp we’ll have even more SC spots open for bouldering and climbing.

Stephen Scoff

Thanks again to the Clemson Climbers for hooking up this great comp and supporting the CCC...we really appreciate their help and look forward to getting these guys involved in some trail days at some local boulders here soon!
