nice trip with Gary to the Pinn's last Sunday... warm warm weather and a really great time at Discovery Wall (though a lot of other people had the same idea, so we have an excuse for low productivity, even without the short day reason).

Please don't take this post as an endorsement to do Lost Horizon, while it had some really good parts, the traverse that Gary is leading in the picture featured rotten holds and lichen/moss for the feet, and was the scene of a 2013 ANAM report.

The more difficult variation goes up the thin crack just about where he is, and while a bit more desperate, you probably won't be surprised by the choss just to his right (until you get up to the exit moves, that is).

This unfortunately for me is turning into an extended period of climbing inactivity...

Got myself in such a mental SLUMP that I am in need of long and unventilated GLUE sessions...

Seems to be helping...

A beaut of a day at Sugarloaf yesterday giving the tour de classiques to a visitor. Well, mostly classics: The Fang, Stone, Taurus, Fracture, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Pony Express, and Under the Spreading Atrophy.

Wonderful weather was complemented by climbers with sunny dispositions.

Even met Aidan Maguire (sp?), who proved to be a very friendly fellow. Nice to put a face to the climbs. Meanwhile, Crawdaddy Paul Crawford worked some steep stuff.

Spirit Mountain, Christmas Tree Pass, Laughlin NV.

Just moved here before Christmas. Did not quite make the summit of Spirit Mt., late start and ran out of light but had a fun half day on the rocks.

edit: Grafton amphitheater, Trad; everything from 2+ flows to that little couloir in the left corner and hanging daggers, all in about 100 yds. Sweet!

I know, I know, 52 year old men should act and dress their age not their shoe size, but in my defense it was pretty damned warm.
