More information:
I love to climb! Probably too much which is fine with me but sometimes not okay with my lady.

I am currently working on a project to climb all the documented routes in the Main Area of Crowders Mountain State Park, North Carolina. I picked this goal because when I first started dancing ballet I was told that there are many styles of ballet but that I should try and master one. Then the other styles would come somewhat easier. I took this to heart and decided that I should 'master' one area's climbing style and then go from there.

I picked Crowders Mountain for a simple reason, it is the nearest established climbing area to Columbia, South Carolina.

When I first began to tell people about my project, they just looked at me like I was crazy. So I stopped telling people about my project. Now I don't care what people think. Through-out this whole process I've been contributing to Mountain Project, cleaning out briars from untraveled routes, learning about the area's history, meeting and befriending a variety of climbers and I've learned so much about my abilities.

Here are couple of traits of climbing at Crowders that are share worthy. People say that Crowders is ALWAYS crowded. This is somewhat true on the weekends if you want to get on PRACTICE WALL, DAVIDS CASTLE BACKSIDE, MIDDLE FINGER BACKSIDE, GUMBIES ROOF and FORTRESS WALL. Otherwise, the other areas don't see a whole lot of traffic. The sport routes see a good amount of traffic and are mostly cleaned of bad quality rock. The traditional routes are somewhat of a guessing game although in all the time I've climbed at Crowders I've only had a couple of occasions where the rock was complete 'choss'. Crowders is a great training ground and like I always say, "If you can climb traditional routes at Crowders, you can climb traditional routes anywhere!"

Enough rambling for now, wish me luck as I continue to try and master this mountain!

  • ***Note that all my material was deleted by admin at some point. All my ticks were deleted, my 'great contributions' and my dates were lost in the process. Alas, I was not given a chance to salvage information regarding tick dates so I had to re-tick everything on Feb. 5th (I didn't actually climb all those routes on the 5th of Feb).
