Asheboro Boulders

State: 
North Carolina

Area rep: Brian Payst [email protected]

Fantastic granite boulders located just outside of Asheboro. Per the terms of our lease, in order to boulder here you need to be a CCC member.

The Asheboro boulders are a prime winter bouldering area: the grippy texture of the rock requires cold temperatures for the best friction. First-time visitors are often confused by the number of boulders and the sometimes cryptic nature of the lines, but once you have visited a couple of times you will get your bearings and develop an eye for spotting the problems. Get your smearing shoes on!

Directions

Directions are available only to CCC members and were emailed when you joined (if you joined since we launched the new website). If you are a member and need directions, contact us and we'll get you set up.

What to expect

Bouldering on slabs, cracks and features. There's not a lot of steep rock at Asheboro and success is achieved through balance and good foot work. Top outs can sometimes be the hardest part of a problem, be sure to pad adequately and have good spotters for the taller problems. There are no top rope anchors at Asheboro and installing fixed hardware is not permitted.
