Bouldering.
Such a rare and BEAUTIFUL place! An entire area filled with amazing boulders and hundreds of V0 to V3 routes. It's almost unheard of, to have that many beginning to moderate routes in one area. This area should be called a boulder's playground. The Wave was by far the most popular route, an aesthetic flake-style crack on the side of a large granite boulder with great moves and a cruxy finish. I think EVERYONE got there photo on 'The Wave.' Everyone attempted the route but not everyone finished it, the crux move was just high enough to make a person question their own ability and strength. For me, the other route that stands out was a V2 that I fell off of at least 30 times. It was a thin traverse that started low enough to feel safe falling on. The hands were slopers and required a low center of gravity to hold on to, the feet were friction only. After multiple attempts, I decided to try my less aggressive trad shoes, I sent on the first try! It's finish was a terrifying high step, and throwing for a very small indention some may call a "dish."
Great Day! Madison had a blast! I thought this was a great place to take a beginner boulderer like Madison!
This was a meetup event organized by my friend: Climb, Alex (at least that is his name in my phone ;))
