After nearly two weeks off climbing, it was time to get back on the wall. This is a new route on the bouldering pillar. Read more
The more I climb outside the more respect I have for outside climbers. It is way harder than it looks and it is a lot harder than climbing in a gym where you can easily spot all your placements. Read more
Even though this route is likely over rated, I’m still calling it my best ever for the time being. Read more
This is Arthur Page coming to you live from One City Center in Portland Maine for the Ripple Effect rappelling event! Read more
I just had a really great night at the gym. If you’ve seen some of the earlier posts, you know that I’ve struggled with the current MRG bouldering set. Read more
You may have noticed a few videos starring Brandon. Well for weeks now, we’ve had a nickname for this white route. This is a clean show, but lets just say it is five letters and rhymes with ‘the twitch’. Time after time we both tried it and both failed. Usually in the same spot. Last week, this route broke Brandon’s new beaner. Well he has since defeated it, but until today, I hadn’t had a chance to send this mean old bitty.

This route is a tough one in the back corner that requires a lot of wall play and lateral movement at the bottom. Once you get up to the transition, it’s a quick grab of a few small chips and then you’re at a solid top hold. For about a week, Read more
This was a bit of a technically tricky clip. I succeeded on the fourth attempt but the beginning part of the video was corrupted so I had to borrow footage of the first three holds from a before failed attempt. You should notice a different belayer at the end from the beginning (Thank you Scott and Brandon). At 975 (5.9+), this is to date the technically most difficult climb that I’ve attempted.
I tried several times to get this one but kept falling off. The hand holds are very directional but in the wrong direction to where you need them to be. That is why this is a V3 I guess. Read more
I’ve only ever climbed inside at a gym and always wanted to take it to the next level. I had been to Fort Williams before and noted the rock cliffs against the water. Read more
