A Change of Pace: Tahoe Bouldering - Urs Moosmuller

A Change of Pace: Tahoe Bouldering - Urs Moosmuller
June 28, 2014 -  Urs Moosmuller

I am now in Reno, NV after a brutal 32 hour drive from CD Juarez to Boulder and Boulder, CO to Reno, NV. The non stop drive through two nights took a lot out of me and I was lucky to get one good night of sleep before competing in the annual competition at my local climbing gym. With one night of rest in a comfortable bed, I started the 4hr comp and ended up placing third in the open category. I felt very proud with my results taking in consideration my lack of sleep, lack of food, and...

Spring Break Hueco Adventure - Joseph Gifford

Spring Break Hueco Adventure - Joseph Gifford
April 12, 2014 - 

For my spring break I went to Hueco Tanks once again to finish up some climbs I had been working on in the previous winter break. It was a crew of me Kyle Francis, Dalan Faulkner, Kyle Hilton, Shannon Lochridge and Tanner Merkle. I only had four climbing days while in Hueco so I didn't have too much time to project anything but I did finish some stuff up. Our first day and second we really didn't do much, it was more of a warm up to outside climbing day. But on our rest day we had some...

The Power of the Powerless V10 - Hans Montenegro

The Power of the Powerless V10 - Hans Montenegro
September 06, 2013 - 

This problem is an important realization for me. I tried it in the summer. So, the weather was too hot and the holds were not good at all. Also, I could not crimp with my left hand because my finger pulley was not in shape. All those elements have done this V10 harder than I expected it.I tried "The power of the powerless" four sessions. The first day, I did not understand anything. The first move was too hard but at the end of the day, I understood that the movement needed a special body position (compress but turning...

Lake Tahoe Bouldering - Urs Moosmuller

Lake Tahoe Bouldering - Urs Moosmuller
July 02, 2013 - 

Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America and contains thousands of granite boulders that surround the mountains and hillsides around the lake. Recently Mike Hatchet has produced a very detailed guidebook on bouldering on the North and west Shore of Tahoe. With over 3,200 problems, it has shed some light on a ton of areas that were only accessed through local knowledge and word of mouth. Growing up in the north east part of Lake Tahoe I am pretty familiar with most of the areas, but with the purchase of this book I...

Mexico Part 2 - Mexico City Bouldering - Urs Moosmuller

Mexico Part 2 - Mexico City Bouldering - Urs Moosmuller
May 04, 2013 - 

Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world and has a population of 21 million. The whole city stretches for 573 square miles and sits in a dried up lake basin at an altitude of 7,350 ft. There is a ton of bouldering located in the city and around the surrounding hills. The rock is mostly volcanic with some granite areas scattered around and the problems range from V0 to V12. During my stay in the city we checked out two areas close by. The first area is a volcanic cliff line at UNAM which is...

Bubba Ho Tep - NRG
October 18, 2011 -  Tim Rose

October on the east coast marks the start of climbing season.  The mountains are painted by the changing of the leaves and temperatures are prime for firing projects.  Conditions on the east coast vary so much through the year from frigid winters to hot and humid summers that fall is a welcomed change.  One of my favorite places to spend fall climbing is the New River Gorge WV.
