New Stuff

Found a grip load of boulders near a frequented area yesterday while grouse hunting.  The weekend will see us there for some cleaning, first ascents and exploration. 

In other, less important news:  the Lolo blog has come to fruition.  The Lolo Bouldering blog is where most of my posting will be from now on.  It's sort of like the great folks over at Montana Bouldering.  Levi, Justin and I will be contributing to it with photos, libel, and beta in the near future.  It's sort of under construction at the moment but there are a couple of posts up.

Lolo

New problems have been going up all around the forest.  The season is here and it feels fucking great.  We have been seeing more cars up at the boulders which is a good thing.  People need to get out and explore those woods!

Exploration and discovery is an integral part to this sort of 'adventure' bouldering we have in Lolo.  Thick forests and a real lack of drivable roads lends itself well to the adventurous climber.  This isn't for the lazy grid bolters or gym rats.  I know this because I was once a lazy gym rat.  Fortunately Levi's drive for new stone is infectious and it clearly has rubbed off on me.  This climbing is not a 'game' as some people see it.  This is work and you damn well better clock in your time card and reap the rewards.  Or as Guru says "I put in work and watch my status escalate."

Expect a fair amount of Lolo beta coming to the internet soon.  We've been considering posting a few areas, directions and beta this winter so people can get excited for the spring season.  But don't wait until spring.  Go seek the unknown, shred your tips, shoot guns, drink some beers and fucking enjoy it.  Lolo in the fall is unreal.

Iskra and I are rolling out today to shoot my new pistol and check out adventure bouldering 2.0.  We are spoiled for choice.  Photos next post.
