This post is to commemorate that the number of problems we have documented on OldPuebloBouldering.com has doubled since we first went online. We began with 904 problems and this past week we reached 1811!! It has taken thousands of hours and thousands of dollars to make it this far, and we are not done yet. It maybe fair to say that we will never be done, but at some point we will have to put the information we have into a more permanent and portable medium. We have begun work on the printed guidebook, but don’t expect anything concrete for another year or two. Making a print guide is a big job and there are still hundreds of problems we know about that have not made it online yet.
Additionally, there are hundreds of projects included in that 1811 problem count!! And some, if not most, are projects simply because there wasn’t time to climb them, not because they are futuristic double-digit highballs. We don’t expect them all to go down before we commit ink to the page but we want as many as possible to see ascents. The primary reason for OPB’s existence is to get people excited about the quality bouldering scattered around Southern Arizona, problems and projects alike. We’re not asking for anything we don’t want to do ourselves, we just need you to get out there and tackle some of these lines and then tell us what you think about them. The more input we have the more accurate we can be. And who knows, you might end up climbing something new, or at least something that hasn’t seen an ascent since Bob Murray flashed it in his high tops twenty years ago.
