  1. I just found this on the official DOT site. It seems like there are some important new discoveries taking place in Newhalem. I knew there had to be a silver lining to this giant, snowy cloud. Maybe they'll leave this one next to the road...
  2. Hi Everyone - Just a note to say that Central Washington Bouldering: Leavenworth and Gold Bar has finally been released. The guide contains over 500 problems in Leavenworth, and roughly 150 in Gold Bar, along with lots of pictures. I think it turned out quite well. It's over 200 pages thick, and will retail for $25.00. At this point the book can be found at some retail stores in Seattle and Leavenworth, but the best way to purchase at this point is directly from the publisher's site: http://www.sharpendbooks.com/prod.php?t=0&q=66 If you're really excited, give them a call and they'll be sure to ship it right off. Happy Climbing, Kelly
  3. More Bouldering Videos

    Just another note that there are more Leavenworth and Gold Bar bouldering videos on YouTube... check them out if you're so inclined. Here's the link. Peace, Kelly
  4. Bouldering Videos

    More videos added... including a recent ascent of Pimpsqueak in Upper Mad Meadows, Icicle Canyon, Leavenworth.
  5. Bouldering Videos

    This is just a reminder that I've posted a bunch of WA bouldering videos on YouTube. Leavenworth, Gold Bar, Index, and Lake Serene are included now, and I will be adding more as time goes on. So far the only video with a lot of views is a Joel Zerr video of Kobe Tai in Upper Forestland. I think most people were expecting to find something else... That particular video can also be found on Modump.com, along with some sweet WA bouldering photos by Brian Sweeney. Anyhow, here's the link to my videos. Enjoy, Kelly
  6. Leavenworth + Gold Bar Bouldering Guide

    Thanks for the positive replies guys and girls. Yes, the name was a bit of a conundrum. I would have rather called the book something like "Stones of Wonder and Joy," but I decided to heed the google-search analogy of how people's brains pick up info. Central Washington Bouldering may be a bit imprecise, but consider the geography bent by the quality of the areas. Euclid is dead. It's like writing a guide to Hueco and calling it West Texas Bouldering. There are other areas, but these are the ones getting all the attention - the best. Terry, thanks for posting the pics. You flatter me, as well as Brian Sweeney, an upcoming young photographer from Reno, NV. Both of those are actually in the guide. I visited North Bend for the first time recently, and was pretty impressed. I'll have to impose on you to give me a tour of the Black Forest sometime. I'm willing to sign a non-guidebook agreement if I have to. Kelly
  7. Hi Everyone - Just a quick note about the upcoming Leavenworth and Gold Bar guide. Central Washington Bouldering: Leavenworth and Gold Bar will be released sometime during April by Sharp End Books, a small company in Boulder, Colorado. I finished work on it a few months ago, and I'm just now seeing what they've done with the layout. I have to say it looks pretty sweet - the guide will be printed in black and white, but there are plenty of awesome images, as well as detailed maps and photographic 'topos.' The book will list over 550 problems in Leavenworth, 150 in Gold Bar, and a dozen in Index. For the time being, I've uploaded some old climbingfilms.com videos of Leavenworth and Gold Bar on youtube. Check them out here. I will be adding more over time, especially when the weather improves. At this rate, spring will be here soon. Feel free to PM me with any questions, etc. See you all out there!

  8. Hello all you internet folks - I'm currently working on an updated guide to the wonderful granite boulders of Leavenworth. It will also include most of the established bouldering at Gold Bar, with great pictures to match. It is going to be published by Sharp End Publishing, and should be available by next year's spring season. When I've seen a new guide come out for an area that I've climbed at, it always seems like everyone has some sort of problem with it. This name is changed, that problem three grades too easy, or whatever. It sort of comes with the territory, but I'd still like to get input from anybody who's got something to say. If you have any information you'd like to share, whether it be the name of this great V0 you may have found at Swiftwater, or a cool old-school picture of your buddy climbing The Peephole in EBs, I'm all ears. Please feel free to email me at sheridan.kelly@gmail.com me with your questions, comments, grades, 'secret' areas, cool stories, anything. If you're coming into town and just need some beta, that's cool too. Thanks - Happy Climbing! Kelly
