Avoiding a highball situaiton, LJ takes the easy top-out option on a classic Boat Rock problem. Note, on the right is a Boat Rock "local" who is providing a fine southern spot.
We are less than three months away for the upcoming "Float the Boat" boulder competition. Come on out and check out nearly a half mile of wonderful egg shaped granite boulders at Boat Rock. The developer has given us a green light to hold the comp around the lake. See if you've got what it takes to ride "The Rail" or push up on the big mantle of "Glass Face" or if your hand jams are up to snuff for "Beam me up Scotty". And oh yeah, dont forget the new 7.8 acre area we just purchased in the front area with such notable gems as "The Paint Can", "Lost Digits" and "Waves in Motion".

Course setting by Bob Cormany, Steve Deweese, Steven Farmer, and Jason Young with a special appearance by bouldering guru and comp organizer Adam Henry (AHSL). Pregistration is $35.00 or $40.00 at the day of the event. Participants get a BR tshirt, a smokin' day of bouldering and a hot dinner. Huge raffle and auction as always. Divisions to be set on day of event. Cash prize $$$ to the Elite Division. There will also be a womens division, geritol division (over 30) (we will create another older division if we get more signups! and a kids division (12 and under). If you are not interested in competing but want to support the event we are selling individual sponsor tickets for $20.00 which get you a t-shirt, cookout lunch and raffle ticket.

Sponsors: PMI, Misty Mountain, Blue Water, So ill Holds, Atlanta Rocks, Call of the Wild, Urban Outpost, High Country Outfitters.

Email: mbmcleod@mindspring.com for more info and other useless stuff and check the SCC site for further updates. We are working on a special guest to make an appearance.
