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.

We are having the late winter/early spring clean up and bouldering event next Saturday...plan to come help out with some spring cleaning of the parking areas for the various boulderfields in the Jocassee Gorges and then stay for some of the best pebble wrastlin in the state!  Here is a link to the event on Facebook (!/events/380442348720956/), and below is the lowdown from Stephen Scoff...

If you missed the BIG Jocassee Gorges Trail Day back in December, then stop kicking yourself for being such a loser and make it out to this one.  With the daffodils blooming and buds on the trees popping, the prime SC bouldering season is quickly coming to a close...take advantage of this great opportunity to climb some new stuff with a great crew of psyched boulderers!!!   Come on out, pitch in with some community service, reward yourself with some fantastic bouldering, and enjoy relaxing with like minded folks around the bonfire!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Stephen or myself through e-mail or post your concerns on the Facebook event page for quickest response.  Hope to see a lot of familiar faces and new ones just the same!


  1. Thinking about going. Is there cell phone reception? I am asking because my wife wants to come but she is on call this weekend and has to be able to answer the phone. If not I will probably just come alone.



  2. We have postponed this event until the 30th due to the threat of rain and winter weather tomorrow. I'll post up the information about the rescheduled event as soon as it becomes available. Thanks for your interest Allan, and I hope y'all can make it out the 30th!

  3. BTW, there IS cellphone reception at all of the boulders in the Jocassee Gorges, at least the ones we plan on hitting for the trail day.

  5. I’m Charles David by name, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scam everywhere, Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Dr Purva Pius ( A God fearing man) who lend me a loan of $237,000 under 72 working hours without any stress. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan from this company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them i filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my shock I was given the loan, If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via: {}

    I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders.

    Thanks you Dr Purva Pius Loan service for your help.
