It's no secret that the Southeastern US has some of the best rock climbing in the country. Grassroots organizations like the Southeastern Climbers Coalition and the Carolina Climbers Coalition are gaining and preserving access to this treasure in a unique way - by buying it. the annual Triple Crown Bouldering Competition - the largest outdoor climbing competition in the world - is at the center of this access revolution. This new film celebrates what many are calling a Golden Age of discovery and stewardship in the South. It's a look at the miraculous mix of activism, generosity and respect for tradition, in the Heart of Stone.
I didn't have any film commitment last week so I took a chance and did something I had been waiting to do since last december; pack the car, go to Cham and catch up with the characters over there.
The weather wasn't looking too good but everyone I spoke to told me to make my way and "see what happens".
I also had new planks from Armada to try out so I figured, even if it was stormy, I could still go for a couple turns. Turns out I had an amazing three days! Fresh track on the north face of the Aiguille and hot lapping Les Grands Montets.
A huge thanks to Andreas, Bjarne, Tof, Tom & Ben for letting me tag along, for setting up bomber anchors and opening routes!

I found out about the Ahn trio when I say them live at the Chilkat Center in Haines Alaska! Chris Booth had even made it into local blog that night "A blond young man wearing a suit and dress shirt with matching bow tie "; heatherlende.com/ahn-trio-wows

Black Diamond athletes Daniel Jung and Nico and Olivier Favresse are always on the hunt for first ascents, and their most recent search led them to Norway where they found a stunning, overhanging wall laced with cracks. The trio's FA pursuit involved skin-shredding jams, mega whippers, and daily shenanigans, including scooter jumping and swapping tooth-brushing tips.

BD athlete Mason Earle has logged countless miles hiking the clifflines of southern Utah looking for undone cracks. The fruits of his labor are a slew of prime first ascents, typically splitter, thin and stout. At Lower Mill Creek outside of Moab, his most recent new route, Real Talk, is one of his best—and one of his boldest.
