Yet another of our dearest climbing friends is leaving us for greener pastures, better work, better boulders, and sunnier weather… but we had one last hurrah with the Chad-meister last night at the Poulsbo Boulder. Seriously, guys – you did all this work to dig the thing out and clean it – you have got to do a topo so that nobody else steals your FAs. The Vertical World A-team met for a real bouldering session at the beautiful little boulder discovered by some local boulderers last year, and I have to say, it far exceeded my expectation.
Now, we did boulder — not super serious, obviously (sorry guys – the one with you two looking studly didn’t turn out – so the funny one had to go on the blog). But, it was super fun. If mantle practice is what you want, this is the place. Otherwise, there’s fantastic variety – one overhanging, traditionally bouldery face with edges and slopers; one nice vertical face with edges and good holds on top (and a fantastic sit start, once you get over yourself and try it), and generally just a lovely place to spend the first 60+ degree evening of the season. Thank you, Mr. Chad… I can’t wait to come visit in Arizona……
