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.

Upcoming Events Near Upstate Bouldering! October 20th, November 2nd-4th and the BIG ONE on December 1st!

There are a few super fun upcoming events near the bouldering in the Upstate of SC...check it all out and enjoy the most that the area has to offer!!!

One With The Ride is having a pre-Halloween Jam, on Saturday October 20th starting at 2pm, that includes skateboarding on the mini-ramp/half pipe, biking on the new dirt jump course, bouldering on their new bouldering wall (and boulders only 5 minutes away), music and the possibility of camping!  This is a great way to meet the newest supporter of the upstate bouldering community, do some local bouldering and spend the evening having fun before you camp out and get up to boulder again the next morning!!! Here is a link to their webpage and a link to the Facebook post with information about the event. I'll be around the boulders on Saturday morning if anyone is in town and wants to tag along on a session before the festivities begin...drop me a post or message here or on the Upstate Bouldering Facebook page:)
