Not enough Alpine climbers on the taco to recognize those cracks? I'm sure Michael knows, though.

Beautiful September-like weather here in NH this morning. Heading up to North Conway soon.

There are some great photos here, but Handsome B your shots are simply awesome. I hope your a pro photographer 'cause that's some quality work.

I agree, HB's shots are excellent. Hope we see many more.

Love the whole variety of these random TRs, though. On this page alone, just five posts old, we've already got the Alps, High Sierra and SE Oregon.
Climbers out there livin' the life.

To keep the geographic mix going, a couple of one-handed snapshots from Cathedral Ledge last week:



and Humphrey's Ledge today:

So Pennsylenvy was visiting from Flagstaff and wanted to check out some New Hampshire granite.
He mentioned that he'd been climbing steep routes with the Doctor, but that slabs made him slightly nervous.

The big left-to-right arch in the photo defines the very popular Standard Route, 5.5.
I had in mind that Pennsylenvy and I should climb something different, Tidal Wave or
Black Jade, if only I could recall where they went. Somwhere up the streaks straight
above the arch, but the devil is in the details.

At least the start was obvious, break through the arch a few hundred feet up.

Glad you got out, Chiloe! We arrived in Colorful Colorado on Friday. We're headed to Wyoming in a couple days, but thought I'd share a few random "thus far" notes and pics.

We started the trip at Red Rocks, seeing Alison Krauss and Robert Plant. I can never get over how amazing the venue and views are there.


Then, headed to the Splatte for family camping, hiking, and a bit of climbing. We hadn't been back to the Splatte in 14 years...pre-fire. The burn damage was overwhelming to see, but the aspens and columbine are making a comeback.




Hiking up to Turkey Rocks.

And, Tessa at Turkey Perch on what was Kelly's first trad lead about 15 years ago.

And, a few more scenery shots from hiking...that pikes peak granite!

Red Rocks CO, very cool. I loved that place as a teenager, did some scary scrambles there.
Illegal as hell.

Way to go, Tessa. Y'all heading for the Voo?

See, I thought that Pennsylenvy and I were climbing Black Jade, but it turned out I was
mistaken about exactly where that went. Now that I know better, you and I should fire
it later this summer.

Instead, P led Tidal Wave with bad beta. Here he's warming up on runout 5.8.

Mungeclimber, very cool that Salad's daughter's name is Tessa too -- seven years ago we rarely heard the name, but have met a few since.

here is our older (10) daughter, Sammy, on the same route (she has been psyched to 2nd climbs lately if it involves cleaning, but in this pic you can see a green cam getting away from her)

yep, Chiloe, hoping for a couple days at the voo...

a Colo-Wyo family vacation, continued

Highlights included horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, swimming, fishing, and acoustic jams as well as trips to the zoo, two amusement parks, Red Rocks, and a triple-A baseball game (complete with 4th fireworks)…oh yeah, and climbing.

I was able to climb with 6 different family members:
1 wife
2 daughters
1 dad
1 sister-in-law
1 fiancé of sister-in-law

Forgot the camera at the Voo, so Vince valiantly took shots with his camera phone (I tried to chop in quality to little avail). This was the “best” shot of the bunch…me on the 1st pitch of Grand Traverse.

At Lumpy, I got out for a very fun early morning with my dad. This was just his 3rd time climbing, and the first time in 10 years ago.

Here he is strapping on the helmet and working on Grack Crack.


That morning, also got to try Rooster Tail

and Yosemite Crack.

And, some random shots for this random tr:

A fresh trout dinner,

a cactus flower,


and another beautiful Colorado sunset.

Neat stuff, Eric. Loved the fish and 3-generation TR. Your dad looks oddly familiar!
