Strap on a harness, tie in, and boulder up a long problem, clipping in all the way. No belayer? No problem! None is needed!!! Sound crazy?A little, but super fun. Come check it out, see what you think!

I signed up for the Boston Boulder Brawl quite awhile ago, long before I knew how broken down I would be by April. But the event sounds fun and innovative, so I’m going to load up the car one more time this season and make the trip out to Boston. Then it will be a bit of a competing hiatus while I recover and start a hard summer training program.
