With one of the worst landings in the Buttermilks, four pads, three spotters, and terrible temps, conditions were less […]

There is a crew of us in southern California seeking local bouldering. We are rediscovering some of what is possible in the Ortega Hwy area. There is a ton of stone out here, but really much of it is not worth climbing. All of that said we have discovered some gems like the Jurassic boulder. […]

Watch Ben Moon fire this Yosemite classic. Who is Ben Moon you say? For the last two decades, Ben Moon’s name has been inextricably linked to climbing. Indeed, since 1984 when, as an 18 year old, he made the first ascent of Statement of Youth 8a, Ben has been in the vanguard of British and […]

This video is about a new Sit Down Start (SDS) to Seven Spanish Angels, a classic boulder problem in the Buttermilks in Bishop, CA, USA.

Hit the Ortega’s with my crew Sunday. It has been at least 15 years since I would scour this place for something to climb with my friend Craig Pearson. This area we climbed was new to me and Kevin introduced me to a couple of cool lines. I almost flashed Washed Out (2nd try), probably […]
