Crash Landing at J-Tree

Average Rating = 4.12/5 Crash Landing at J-Tree

Poor little crag gremmie bvb, having been sandbagged by some ruthless locals, about to hit hard after pitching off the crux sloper mantle on intersection boulder's V3 center route, winter of 1973. Note the advanced "spotting" technique being employed by the ground team, who were all busy trying to get out of the way! As for the natty threads...hey, this was '73, when you could still wear wool knickers with a perfectly straight face and get away with it...

Warming Up On A Bluestone Day

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Warming Up On A Bluestone Day

Jocelyn warming up on a cold, crisp, bone dry day in Font, January 1990. Perfect conditions, and with the exception of a couple of really freindly locals we didn't see any other climbers all week. I hate to say it, but those were the days...

Stingray -- The First Recon

Average Rating = 3.82/5 Stingray -- The First Recon

Here's one for the history books -- March 1985 -- Brooke Sandahl and Mike Paul making the first attempts on Stingray, later TR'd by Mike to become JTree's hardest crack. On this freezing March day, good progress ws made, but man did the fingers get COLD!

Epi, Showing Some Serious Buff

Average Rating = 3.73/5 Epi, Showing Some Serious Buff

Once upon a time, epi ruled the scene when it came to long, knee-knocking runouts and steep boulder problems that demanded flexibility and raw, unfettered power. Here's Greg in his prime, circa 1985, showing us how it's done on his shamelessly sandbagged B1 "Epicenter", Mt. Woodson.

Jocelyn on the Whiffle Ball

Average Rating = 3.83/5 Jocelyn on the Whiffle Ball

Jocelyn starts to air it out on the Whiffle Ball, one of many superb highball boulder problems at Big Rocks, an area loaded with off-the-deck moderates. The problem Jocelyn's on in this photo is a 30' V2 heavily pocketed jug haul with the crux down low, and a must-do for those visiting the area. Look for full beta on Big Rocks in the soon-to-be-released Russo/Baldwin/Beck Utah Bouldering Guide.

Big Rocks -- The Skull Rock Roof

Average Rating = 3.80/5 Big Rocks -- The Skull Rock Roof

Typical of Big Rocks bouldering is this long, powerful sit down roof. After travelling miles of horizontal, relief is granted when you finally hit the big huecos at the lip. But it ain't over till it's over -- a burly topout now awaits the fully pumped pebble wrestler!

trad -- the very definition of style

Average Rating = 3.89/5 trad -- the very definition of style

a very young bvb styles the splitter on a typical trad ascent, circa 1975. Notice the grace, poise, and ethical purity cherished by those of a bygone era. Nothing tainted about this ascent of Stone Groove! This is the way it was done, back when giants roamed the earth...
