Bouldering at Governor Dodge

A sloth.

I made a quick trip to Governor Dodge State Park, about an hour from Madison, with the Hoofer Mountaineering Club for some bouldering on a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon. We started at the Backbone, a beautiful wall with dozens of problems ranging in difficulty from V0 to V8. To end the day, we went to the Godfather Boulder, which is probably the most famous rock in the park. It's tall, overhung, and has problems with names like Corleone's Corner and Sleeping with the Fishes. This was a fun day to get outside while the weather was still warm.
