brianpharrington here are some awesome folks @amcieply, @xac & @piiloblondie enjoying a fine day out in the Sunfish Pond Annex last May. Such great boulders out there. Here @xac is taking down 'False Freedom' a very fun and gymnastic problem out a #battleship like prow. I think alone at the Annex there are roughly 80 problems and many many more to be done of all difficulty and styles. Check out the kickstarter project for a huuuge color printed #bouldering #guidebook. it's going to be a fun project to #support because not only will you get a badass book for a $1 pledge; you will make it possible for others to experience the same amazing #climbing in #pennsylvania seen above. @isofunus .......Link in profile 6h
  •   xac One of the best problems in northern PA! 6h
  •   brianpharrington @xac couldn't agree more; that single bloc can keep me busy all day 5h

brianpharrington There is amazing chunk of stone out in #pennsylvania which has to be one of my top 10 of all time #boulderproblems. Video Story: 'Tail Spin' out at Sunfish Pond could be stuck anywhere in this country and it would be #classic #bouldering. immaculate sandstone thug compression, a sick duckbill hold, upside down kneebar over a death pit, credit card crimps on tech slab finish.... ohhh so good. Super proud to have found this rig and unlocked it's cryptic sequence for the #firstascent so many years ago. I get little emails once and awhile from someone who gets to climb it. Usually there is mention best they have ever done and I tend to agree. Hearing of this seems to always put a grin on the face and a flood of memories. Check out the #guidebook #kickstarter to learn more of this and hundreds others in the region that keeps providing ill nasty #pabouldering. Link in profile. 2d

brianpharrington another #climbing photo from the #pabouldering vault. Here Chris is working his way up 'Venus Fly Trap' out at McCraney Run. Renamed after tragic hold breakage when @oakcy made an ascent. This area seems be like the Bermuda Triangle for some people when they head out to find it. With a #pennsylvania #bouldering #guidebook people shall rejoice when they make it out with zero trouble. Learn more how a simple pledge can get you all the #beta and a kick ass printed guidebook.

brianpharrington #tbt to the crew photoshoot day where I climbed up a tree to get some sky cam shots of #pabouldering. PHOTO STORY: Here @pinklovespink goes to battle for the millionth time with the Coal Run mega classic 'Sinful Nature'.

brianpharrington Yea... summer can be hot and buggy in #pennsylvania, so you best not let this #dood catch you slipping on that #deet game! A whole lot of fun moments with this guy all over the East Coast but most importantly during the time we developed the #pabouldering scene. There will be a whole spread from Chris dropping knowledge on the ways to survive the untamed environs of PA #bouldering zones. Support that #kickstarter for $1 and if we meet our goal, I'll be buying this kid a custom PA Bouldering hunter orange beenie. shhhh it's a secret but make sure to check the link in my profile. 1w

brianpharrington ️conditions doesn't mean only #climbing indoors. there are a couple easily accessible #bouldering areas to go play at in #pennsylvania. PHOTO STORY: People have been climbing at Rock Run for decades. Legendary John Derr has climbed these boulders for what seems like forever. The great thing is the close proximity to the road and easy access in winter. Here @pinklovespink is eyeing up a send on John's 'Human Pony Girl'. Rock Run is certainly no secret but not many others know of the secrets that lay in the surrounding hills. Get on board with the #kickstarter for the Northern PA bouldering guidebook. For just $1 you can help support this project and get yourself a copy of the guide to help strategizing where to climb next winter. Link in profile. 1w

brianpharrington another awesome thing about #pabouldering is regardless of your #bouldering skill level there are amazing boulders for everyone to enjoy. Photo story: Right off the main drag there are quite a few side areas. This one Carbon Run hosts some great easier climbs with the same great overhanging sandstone flavor. Here @pinklovespink climbs 'Calypso'. Certainly the classic for the area. Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend and checkout the #guidebook #kickstarter which is linked in my profile. 1w

brianpharrington Hope everyone is having a great weekend thus far. One cool thing about the #bouldering in #pennsylvania is the diversity of features. For some stinking reason the blocks in the Leroy area tend to be steep. Which makes for some awesome #climbing. Photo story: Here is Joe Porter on an area classic 'Big Kids Meal' sporting an interesting giant spike start hold to heel hooks out perfect crimps and edges. So fun! Check out the #kickstarter project (link in profile) to learn more how you can pledge just $1 and get a bad ass guidebook full of beta, history and climbing porn. 2w

brianpharrington Wow it's been a week since launching the #pabouldering #guidebook #kickstarter, to everyone who pledged, but we are far from our goal. I challenge everyone who likes this #bouldering photo to pledge $1 to support this project and receive a copy of the guide. I ask you, have you ever spent $1 on a #climbing guide??? I doubt it, so why not do so now and join in the revolutionary idea that climbing guides should be #free to little cost regardless of quality. Photo story: Lurking deep in the #pennaylvania #gamelands lays a magnificent arete prow. Chris and I battled our way to top many times but have always been baffled on how to finish it. Still a project and certainly will make inclusion into this guide. See profile for link to the kickstarter project 2w

brianpharrington #bouldering is about many things but the little mentioned subject is sharing. sure we share many like snacks, beta and laughs and other little things, but usually when it comes to #newness we find ourselves tight lipped. Here is @pinklovespink ripping a toss to crimpers over a carpet of pads on the FA of 'Battletoads' out at Falls Creek. I showed her the just discovered zone of Falls Creek and that fall we shared on the joys of first ascents. Probably over half the problems out in Falls Creek and Coal Run are of her vision. I have to say it was a lot of fun to share the experience with someone else. Now I ask that if you like bouldering and sharing why not pledge $1 to the #pabouldering #guidebook #kickstarter. $1 will get you a copy of the 150 page full color guide and a warm feeling that by that you're allowing others to share the experience of these amazing boulders. no brainer just do it the link is in my profile. 2w

brianpharrington Another one of my favorite #pabouldering rigs. @amcieply emerges out from the shadows on "Heart of Darkness" out at Triple Roofs. Triple Roofs was the first lil zone I stumbled upon out in Leroy. I can say without finding this zone the rest would still be out there awaiting to be realized for #bouldering. Take a look at the guidebook project on #kickstarter and learn more about the history. Pledge no more than $1 to get in on a badass color guidebook. Link in my profile. 2w

brianpharrington it might be deep #winter in the northeast but never fear spring will come soon and fast. One of the things I treasure about #pabouldering is how early spring comes and how late winter rolls in. There is a huge window for a big year of #bouldering. Above is one of the prettiest lines at Sunfish Pond - 'Woman King'. A line that was put up first day of March 2012. Check out the guidebook #kickstarter project (link in profile) to learn more and pledge $1 to get in on a #climbing #guidebook. 2w

brianpharrington I could talk about all the awesome #bouldering near the ultra small town of #leroy #pennsylvania all damn day. Here is @pinklovespink engaging the power start of 'Wages of War' out at Long Valley. Huecoesque intro climbing to delicate long pulls on half pad crimpers to a cruxy last move. Google Leroy, PA and see how close it be. If it's close enough for a day of bouldering consider backing this kickstarter for a LOW cost HIGH quality guidebook. $1 is all that is needed. If it's too far for even a special trip it's totally worth picking it up for all the action photos of cute lady crushers like this. Link in my profile. 2w
  •   adbunger No doubt. These areas are sick for sure. 2w

brianpharrington there are so much undone #bouldering to out in #pennsylvania, like this late season addition from Jared up in the annex. His line 'Leap of Faith' is one of many stellar bold highball lines. Here he is ready to make the crux toss to the lip. Grab some friends and pads and give this one a ride. Learn more via the kickstarter project (link in profile) for the new guidebook. 3w

brianpharrington BIG thanks to all of you who backed the kickstarter (link in profile) on day 1! Here is Chris Chilas getting the 2nd ascent on one of my favorites at Sunfish Pond - Tailspin. We didn't have the kneebar technology so we duct taped a rubber rehab band to our legs. Fun times #bouldering in #pennsylvania. Get in on this and pledge $1 for a huge color printed guidebook. 3w
