Triple Crown Part 2: Stone Fort! - Francesca Metcalf

Triple Crown Part 2: Stone Fort! - Francesca Metcalf
October 30, 2014 - 

Last weekend was the second leg of the Triple Crown Bouldering Series, which was held at Stone Fort in Chattanooga TN. I like to consider this area my “home-crag” since it is the best and closest bouldering area to me. Unlike Hound Ears, where the last Triple Crown was held and which I only get to climb at once a year if I'm lucky, I know the climbs at Stone Fort pretty well. I was able to take a few weekend trips there this fall, so I had an idea of what climbs I wanted to get on for...

Last weekend was the first competition of this year's Triple Crown Bouldering Series, which was held at Hound Ears in North Carolina. Hound Ears is only open to the public one day per year, and this leg of the series was canceled last year, so it had been two years since I got to climb at this awesome crag. For that reason I was pretty excited for this competition since it's at one of my favorite climbing areas.  

Double Crown at HP40 - Francesca Metcalf

Double Crown at HP40 - Francesca Metcalf
December 04, 2013 - 

The second and final leg of the Triple Crown was held at Horse Pens 40 a few weekends ago. Like the first leg at LRC, I went up with a group of climbers from my collegiate climbing club, and we camped at HP40 with the majority of the other competitors. I was a little nervous going into the competition because I hadn't climbed nearly as well as I had wanted to at LRC, and HP40 tends to give me a hard time. I also hadn't been to Horse Pens since the Triple Crown last year, so I didn't exactly...

LRC Triple Crown - Francesca Metcalf

LRC Triple Crown - Francesca Metcalf
November 07, 2013 - 

You know fall is here when Triple Crown season starts. Unfortunately this year, Triple Crown turned into Double Crown when Hound Ears, the first leg of the series, was cancelled. However, this didn't stop us from being just as psyched when the LRC leg came around. I went to Chattanooga with 14 other GT climbing club members on Saturday night, where we got to hang out in Chat, one of my favorite cities. We got in a little warm-up for the morning with some bouldering on the street art, while we strategized for the next day.

Climb Soill, A Revisit - Jon Cardwell

Climb Soill, A Revisit - Jon Cardwell
September 29, 2012 - 

Last March Jamie Emerson and I were invited to conduct the initial route setting at new climbing gym in St. Louis. David Chancellor, along with a group of talented partners teamed up to create what I like to call an interactive art project. Climb Soill is, in my opinion in a league of its own when it comes to climbing facilities. The colors are vibrant, the building is rustic on the outside, a skeleton of an old power plant, yet the gym inside is clean. When we first entered, I felt like a young child,...

It’s that time of year again! Fall has finally arrived in the Southeast – mornings and nights are actually chilly, humidity levels have reached a bearable level and will only continue to drop with the temperatures, and leaves are showing signs of color. However one of the biggest signs that “the season” is about to kick off down in this neck of the woods is: the TRIPLE CROWN BOULDERING SERIES! This annual event is one of the largest of its kind in the United States and every year it raises thousands of dollars for the Southeastern...
