With the warm weather we hit up some boulders north-east of Wakefield on Wednesday. It was humbling to say the least. The area is still under development with lots of work to be done. A number of the problems we did required us to cut shrubs and create landings by moving stones.

Back in September, when the weather turned crappy for three straight weeks, I took advantage of Coyotes' discounted year memberships. Since September 30th I have been 15 times (see Coyote count). At first, I thought bouldering was not for me but after making noticeable gains, it is now clear that bouldering overhanging routes is the way to get strong. Also, if you are not falling off a route then it should be moved to your warm-up routine. That is, work on routes that are hard for you. No pain, no gain.
