New Nobo's











Craig, Ben and I re-visited an area in the Northern Bourbons that Molly and I had explored a few seasons back. Some pics:

That overhang in the last pic looks SWEET! Havta check that out tomorrow maybe...

It's a really good boulder to project-- just enough holds, steep enough, good landing, etc..

Does being 6'7" have any advantages/disadvantages in bouldering?

edejom said...

Sometimes, I suppose, he has an advantage--he uses different starting holds for sure, and makes less moves than me (I'm barely 5'6")

Sit-starts are usually harder for him, unless he can use higher holds on the get go...

edejom said...

Disadvantages are: difficult hip physics, large feet for micros, and non-scrunchability...


To his credit, he has been out climbing less than a dozen times--but being a bad-ass roofer helps to compensate for that:-)
