Welcome to Rockies Obscure!

Today is August 17, 2017      

 NEW postings are:

Once again a huge thanks goes out to Glenn Reisenhofer for gathering old and new photos and beta to Calgary’s Crater Rock found in Bouldering East, also in the East some added photos of Red Rock Coulee. In Bouldering South you can find the areas for the Jumpingpond Block and the Bunchgrass Boulders. In Bouldering East you can find info for Coveted Bird boulders and the old crusty area known as Sibbald Corners, which has a wonderful problem known simply as Sibbald Crack, finally ascended in May by Brendan Clark. Want a quick scramble? Old Piton is only 45 minutes from the car, the info resides in Rock East. And lastly, a personal anecdotal story from 1991 about being in Peru during the Shining Path’s final year of reign – this story and some added photos, can be found in Rock South for the slab climb of the same name.
The next update planned for the Fall will be the 5th Year Anniversary of rockiesobscure, so to celebrate we will have literally a guidebooks worth of gear routes(ok maybe not a 200 page guidebook lol) from one concentrated area to share with a community that seems to enjoy fringe venues! The bouldering/gear routes near Lake Louise will come at a later date sorry.
Last update was in May.
