San Antonio’s Cub Cave

27 03 2009

The Climb San Antonio Co-op and the American Safe Climbing Association have been working together to upgrade the bolts and anchors at Cub Cave in San Antonio.  Its good to see some work being done there after years of neglect by all but a dedicated few.

Check out the beta at the Cub Cave Beta page and then watch a video of Joe Sulak on Fisher King 5.13a

The Burn, Mileski, and the early days of North Texas Climbing

13 03 2009

So I was perusing the web the other day, when I stumbled across this piece from the mostly-defunct about Cleburne and a certain Jack Mileski .  I had heard about Jack from various folks and have seen him mentioned in everything from online climbing sites to newspaper articles, but had never the privilege of meeting him, and was hoping to learn more.

What follows is a great bit about Jack and the early days of The Burn.

Screw work. Go climbing.

Just got back from a long weekend down at Camp Eagle, where the limestone is tall and the weather was perfect.  Ran into a bunch of leaders from UT-Austin’s Outdoor Rec program scouting the location for some future climbing trips, in addition to all the other great outdoor activities to be had out there – mountain biking, kayaking, etc.

The long and short of it is that I’m not quite ready to go back to work.  I’d much rather be there still.

Check out the Topo page to download the Camp Eagle guide with more pics to see what I’m talking about.
