Are routes that are on the online guide going to be posted soon? I have been here the last few weekends and not only sent a few lines but cleaned a few boulders and set a few new lines. one being an awesome V6 that has an FA and second accent on it now. It is located on the back of big boy up and awesome aret feature to crimpers. The reason i am posting thins is i want to see a good guide put together but i dont want to step on anyones toes that might be working on it. If no one cares, i will start putting a few more pictures up and logging routes, not claiming any FA other than what i clean set and send as a new line myself. Bold Text
Aaron, Alright thanks just let me know, i really dont care about FA or clamming anything because i know most of it probably has been sent in years past. I just would like to see more info on Mountain project. so just let me know what to do or if i can do that. Thanks,
Elloit a charlottesville local is putting together a guide to The Forest. I believe that he is doing it in pdf or powerpoint form with some maps to the boulders that require a bit of bushwhacking. I'll send you his e-mail, you should let him know about any lines/boulders I'm sure he and all of us from Charlottesville would be interested. Hope to catch you out there sometime.
Andrew, you guys should post here on MP if you all are interested. I have a copy on the Forest PDF and it looks awesome. I talked to Elliot about posting on MP and asked him to be cautious about it since there was some emotion up there last time someone posted problems in the forest. I was just trying to avoid the drama. Thanks for all the hard work you guys are doing up there, Im stoked to check it out sometime!
Any updates on when that PDF is going to be released? I went there yesterday with friends and we realize there were probably several areas missed. That PDF would be great, but I understand there are some concerns for this area. I'm assuming it is the usual no trash, dogs, and "leave no trace"...etc. Anything else we should know about? We plan to go back in the near future, but we certainly do not want to explore more if people will get angry.
Hello! I'm going to be climbing at the Forest for the first time next week, and was wondering if anyone could tell me if the Siesta area and the Greenstone trail area are anywhere near the main Forest bouldering area? I have the guidebook, but more detailed directions would be great! Thanks! :)
Andrew: I checked the link and couldnít see/find/navigate to anything concerning closures, although I didnít spend too much time looking. What is closed? I have never climbed here, but if an area has been closed to climbing I would like to post something on here that resonates with climbers a little more loudly than a comment with a link to another site, most folks will skip by it. Could you add some more info? Thanks for sharing! We all need to respect closed areas for sure.
