Adventure, Inspiration, Travel

45 minutes north of Birmingham, nestled on top of Alabama’s Chandler Mountain, is an unexpected bouldering mecca. It goes by the name of Horse Pens 40 and boasts an eclectic combination of  bluegrass festivals and gnarly sandstone boulders. We sent Chaco marketing specialist and occasional lensman Matt Medendorp down south past the Mason Dixon to pit himself against the sandstone slopers.  As always, he packed his Classic Z’s. Keep scrolling to see what he encountered and follow Matt on Instagram (@mattmedendorp) for more Chaco powered adventures.
