So I went to Horse Pens 40 Bouldering area in Steele AL last weekend. I don't have any pics, but here is a link to some of the so called "moderates":
It was really hot, and I was out of shape, so I didn't climb much. We were just about the only ones there though except for two solo guys on different days). Ha! actually, on Sunday before I left I met Austin there (he was the strong asian boulderer that used to go to the gym). He apparently knows my buddy colin now since they both live in Huntsville. Crazy. Anyway, there is some really cool lookin' stone there.
I went to Little Rock City over spring break, which I thought was a little better, but HP40 is definitely worth a trip. The only downside was I thought the camping was a little expensive; $10/person/night (you can cram 8 people into a 2 bed hotel room for that). They do have free showers though (as do hotels).
I also went to Looking Glass Mountain and Rumbling Bald Mountain with T a few weeks prior to that. Great trad climbing, and the most aesthetic place I've ever climbed. I didn't lead too much cause it was the first time I was out in a month +. That was my first real experience with multipitch too which was great. There are some pic of that on facebook if you want to look. There's one picture that looks like I'm trying really hard and looks bad ass, but I am actually on take, and just pissed and squinting out the sun. haha, hardest 5.10 I've ever been on (dum dee dum dum)
I also will be staying in Lexington KY the next couple of years, so if ANYBODY IS GOING TO THE RED...
