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.

Long Time...No Blog

Sorry for the break in posting...a lot has been going on in my life lately! I have had my fair share of bouldering sessions since last I posted a trip report, but the fact that my wife is now on her last month of pregnancy and our daughter Lilly is about to arrive has taken much of my free time I might have used to post. We are so excited about this new phase in our life and cant wait to show our little girl the world we love and play in. I know it'll be a few years, but I cant wait to take her on her first boulder session in Carolina's!

I have had a chance to get out and boulder at quiet a few spots lately. A couple of weeks ago I had the week off for Spring Break, so we did a tour of the local boulderfields...North Face of Looking Glass, Granite City, Jedi, Bearfields, Little Eastatoee and Beasley Gap. I was looking forward to heading to Stone Mountain and the to Dixon for the Crushfest during my break, but the rain cancelled those plans. I wrapped up the SC bouldering season by finishing up a bunch of projects I had on my ticklist. A few that stick out in my mind are the FA's or Higher Country V4 and Bounty Hunter Traverse V4 in Jedi, Best Feeling Arete V4 at Little Eastatoee, and Eclipse Dyno V5 and Full Moon Dyno V4 at Granite City. Its always good to send those routes that you cant get out of your head, before the heat of the summer arrives and pushes those projects back to the fall season! I hope that everyone had a chance to finish up their projects before the heat rolled in and have something to motivate you and to keep you psyched until the cool temps come back around.

I have also been working on a review of one of my favorite climbing videos "3 The Hard Way" for a few weeks now, but I just cant seem to get it finished and published...but keep a look out for that real soon on both this site and


  1. Video looks great. Is it for sale yet? If so, where? Cheers.
