Another outing with Tom Caldwell and Jean Paul Cane. The plan was to scout a small local crag to start planning a future shoot. Despite missing our lighting window, in the end we still came away with some halfway decent photos.

I've really come to love the part of Southern climbing that is exploring these tucked-away little crags scattered throughout the Southeast. What they lack in physical grandeur they more than make up for in natural beauty, rock quality, and a special intimacy that can only be found in those lush, Southern forests. In the spirit of this, Tom and I have begun working on a project to bring to light some of what we love about Southern climbing. Stay tuned!
