The Bouldering Cave is Here!
March 26, 2010 by Woody Noland
The Bouldering Cave under the gym has recently been framed in and is now ready for the climbing staff to figure the perfect place for each and every hold! From the two roof sections, to the overhanging wall in the back, to all the boxes, angles, and other obstacles down each wall, the Cave will present a wide variety of challenges for all of our climbers. The addition of fourteen new fluorescent lights illuminate the area better then ever before, making those precise moves more intentional, and less of a hope and prayer. The floors, shown here post-construction, will actually be covered with layers of mats providing a soft landing zone when attempting the Iron Cross (ala Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible II).
The Cave is now covered by 1232 square feet of paneling, designed with more anchors then holds to allow for constantly changing features, moves, and problems. Regardless of a camper’s experience, each will be able to find challenges that suit their individual ability and push their skills and confidence to new levels. This hard work will pay off in increased comfort on the rock face and in their overall enjoyment of the sport. Not to mention a sweet way to spend time on a rainy day!
