Moss Rock - The Bolder Field Birmingham, Alabama
Here are a few shots of the Bolder Field on Shades Crest. The official name of the area is Moss Rock Trail Preserve, but area climbers know better. There are about 125 established routs from V0 to V13 (the last I heard). I can climb a 5.11 at Sand Rock but I cannot climb a V4 at the Bolder Filed. Part of the problem is you have to be willing to climb 12 to 15, even 20 ft on many of the routs. I will not climb more than about 6 ft."AGE"! This is some of the best Sandstone in the Southeast.
Nice pictures of two of several very difficult cave problems.
I wonder why they call this "Heart Rock"?
Just a few pictures taken during a boldering competition in 2007.
