Wendy and I headed out to explore the bouldering areas of Tatlanika and Rock Creek along the Parks Highway the last couple of days. There is a lot of excellent rock in the area, far more than I imagined. Much of it is undeveloped, but Tom Ellis and others have put in a lot of work cleaning and developing many boulders. The rock is quite monolithic, with few features and often small footholds. We had a great time exploring and got on a lot of different problems. Neither of us sent anything personally difficult.
