Chiloe and I opted out of the beautiful 5.11 tier higher

As I recall you kept looking up at that pitch, while I mentioned many reasons we did not need to try it ... hadn't brought the RPs, wore the wrong color t shirts, etc. Some other day ....

Sometimes a fine line between a proper outing and an arse 'wuppin.
Wouldn't be right to cross that line and wind up with the latter, hehehe.

Thanks for some great routes Chiloe!

Great couple of days, not doubt about it. Here's my last shot from the last climb, Short Order on Whitehorse. So where are the kites?

Ahhh, pics from home. Thanks for making me smile.

Your fast partner (Lisa) very likely passed my former North Conway landlords, Steve & Sally Swenson (72 & 62 respectively) who also ran the road race last weekend.

Maysho, thanks for the personal perspective. Paul Ross might be inclined to know that bolts are still being chopped on Cathedral.

Great TR Roy! And congrats to the wife on her win.

I love that photo of page 484/Franconia Notch where the climbers are all wearing suits and hats. Gotta love the climbing clothing style of the 1930's. True gentlemen!

Send my congrats to Lisa as well, Tar. I was just showing Tracy this thread earlier in the day when she came by to pick up her rack. She mentioned Lisa was looking hot, too. Of course your hat wearing profile again got praise.

Hi Chiloe,

Somewhat better rock at your place than the rock you climbed at "my place" in Sweden recently, eh?!

Fantastic TR!

Maybe I should book myself a flight ...

Better rock but no sea below us, both places were great fun. I'd go back to Kullen in a flash.

Icelandair CPH/KEF/BOS not too pricey. The cliffs wait ....

I can't claim our weather always looks like that, though!

Howdy Jimmy,
Nice pic yourself and welcome to the madness! I bet that you have a couple more kicking around for show and tell. Any shots of Hugh on Stage Fright? Love that little tale of persistence.

Damm Tar...now I have to scan some old shots from the 70's from North Conway. Great place, great climbers and hard routes. Congrats to Lisa.

Jimmy!
'Haven't seen you in a coon's age.
Where you living these days?
How's it going, still involved in making films?

Welcome to the Taco Stand.
Cheers,
Roy

Yes Bob, please heat up that scanner and dish us up some North Conway jewels...
