New season, new psyche!

As it tends to do, the blog has sat dormant for a while now. The summer break from classes has seen many people off on trips and away from Athens and our beloved boulders (if not mentally, at least physically). Fear not though! With the return of the fall semester and cooler temps, climbers will spill out of the wood work and get busy scrubbing the summer lichen off the best stone in Ohio. If you're new to the area and looking to climb, then welcome! The boulders around Athens have a lot to offer for those who are unafraid of a little dirt and moss, or committing to a scary "Athens mantle". Check out some of the nifty topos/guides linked above to get yourself headed in the right direction, or give a shout over on the AthensBouldering FB page if you've got questions. If you're an ol' Athens vet, then you know the deal -  boulders need traffic to stay clean and climbable. Do your part by sending the gnar! And while I know the words I'm writing are very intellectually stimulating, we could use some pretty new pictures to liven this place up. So if you've got an expensive DSLR just sitting around *cough*Corey*cough*, toss that puppy into your bouldering gear and snap a few butt shots.  

Hope to see you out there.

Not sure if anyone is still active on here or in the area but thought I'd take the chance.
New to Athens as of 6/13. haven't really been able to get out climbing much, bouldered in most of the spots in Athens and one short trip to the New but am alway's on the lookout for climbers in the area. Looking to find people to climb with locally and make trips to the New or the Red when possible. Is anyone out there any more, the only people I see are the occasional Columbus climber looking to mix it up for a day.
