Erich and I finally went on a bouldering trip together! It seems that every year we plan a trip and it never pans out… Well this year it happened and it was a good one. Although the weather didn’t fully cooperate we still managed to get our paws on some southern sandstone for a few [...]
Went by Misty yesterday and they were slam out of chalk bags! What did I do? Went to footsloggers and got this bad boy. Bout time to feed him with some chalk. Mmm…tasty. By the way, these are the best chalk bags on the planet. Wearing anything else just wouldn’t feel right. Also, did you [...]
Check this shia. It’s got some sicky Presidents on the soundtrack. 221 IS some of the best rock on the planet. 221 Circuit from Benjamin Newton on Vimeo.

I’ve been back in Boone for a few weeks now and it’s been great. I’m starting to learn a lot about the real estate industry. Recently my dad and I took a trip to Whitetop, VA to capture some amazing footage. I must admit the views are as good as anything I’ve ever seen. The [...]
I found this video through Splitter Choss’s Real Holiday Gift Guide for Climbers. This video is promoting the “Climbing Dictionary“. It was pretty funny so I thought I’d pass it on to you. Looks like a pretty sweet coffee table book and for 15 bucks it might make a nice xmas gift that won’t break [...]
