Bouldering at Governor Dodge

About to fall!

I met a couple of friends last week for an afternoon of bouldering at Governor Dodge State Park. For the uninitiated, bouldering is climbing without a rope, but you use a mattress called a “crash pad” in case you fall. Most boulder “problems” are only 10-15 feet high, but sometimes they can be 20 feet or more. I'm still terrified of climbing anything difficult that's higher than 15 feet without a rope, but getting out there and just trying it a few times helps to get over that fear.
