 Bouldering in the Mt Shasta area has seen a sudden boom in development with the rekindled interest of the 8 Mile Boulders.  8 mile was developed in the  early 90's  as a local lead practice/toproping area with a nice selection of routes from 20-50' long.

  This spring Styles and I visited the area in order to map some of the routes for an upcoming area rock climbing guide. After quickly losing interest in roping up for these short climbs we started to notice enormous potential for a very worthy bouldering area.  We have had no shortage of new problems on any given trip to 8 mile nor do we ever fail to get shut down and enticed to return. We are putting together a guide for the Shasta area which will be out next spring, until then stop in the shop or drop us an email and we'll try to hook you up with some beta.

N. Feather Release Tobin Festival 08'

Last weekend, Sep. 27th and 28th, Justin Patt and myself rallied the 7hr journey to Quincy CA from Santa Cruz. Through the weekend we got to hang with all the boys out at the event. There were 27 short boast along with a sick long boat division, which Charlie Center swept the competition. I took 11th following Shasta Boyz own Devin Knight. J-Patt took 5th in short boat follwing Ben Stookesberry in 4th. It was a very fun weekend with a great crew representing. Enjoy the vid and hope to see everyone out on the S. Feather release.
