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...

Recently, I got to get outside and climb at LRC for the first time this year. I went with the climbing club and acted as a guide with two other officers for some new climbers who who had recently joined the club. For many of them it was their first time outside, so it was really exciting showing them around and seeing them experience the challenges and thrills of climbing outside for the first time.

First off I would like to wish everyone who is reading this a happy new year.  I hope your holidays were relaxing and spent doing what you love most with family and friends.  I’ve done a lot since my last blog post, so I’m going to sum that up, then reflect a little on the past year.

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.

Finishing Up Fall - Francesca Metcalf

December 04, 2012 - 

This fall, I've finally been able to get outside enough to not consider myself a full time gym rat. I've been hanging out at local bouldering areas like Horse Pens 40 and Little Rock City almost every weekend and I've been able to find some long term projects. Luckily the weather still hasn't turned very cold here, so climbing outside is still possible, even for someone as wimpy as I am when it comes to cold. Over the Thanksgiving break, I got to do some more climbing, but a little farther from home than usual. My family and I...

I remember getting bored on my first long road trips. I did my best to prepare with an arms load of books, journals, or playing cards. I would even try out new hobbies like knitting or baking or something. Usually I wouldn’t really like these hobby, the books would get read, my writing wasn’t all that notable and at the end of those long, long rest days I wanted something else to DO.
