It's hot (again) today, but Tuesday = perfect day for a stroll up Cathedral with two teenagers.

Hey cowpoke,

Just updated a right coast thread on Tuesday at N Conway with my daughter, Sammy, and nephew, Jake. Strictly speaking, I guess that doesn't really count as 'round these parts.

Lately, closer to home, we have been spending half-days up at the north shore/Cape Ann with a couple Farley trips sprinkled into the mix.

And, you?

Nice shots! Looks like a fun day -- Funhouse (maybe) to Upper Refuse? Great for the Smaller People. Enjoy those sweet times while they last -- once their off to college (if they go) things change a lot. But the bonds are formed strongly on the rocks, IMHO.

And, ya... NC/NH environs (even Maine and NY/CT etc.) count as local to me :)

Live 12 minutes from Crow Hill but hardly ever go there over the past few years. Recently bought a Micro Traxion and started going solo to CH at fringes of day. Liking it a lot! May get out to Farley (SSSHHHHH) this Sunday??

Recent empty-nester's just getting free again; spending time at Rumney so the Lady can get back on the sharp end (and it's coming back for her now...) Also checking out "other" crags in NH this summer, such as Humphries and Attitash, etc. Nice to see new lines, without the waiting lines lol! Handren's new guide is the inspiration.

Have climbed all over NE in all seasons :)

Take care man!

The four horsemen of the climbing Apocalypse (work, injury, weather, domestic turbulence) have conspired to make this a lousy rock season, but a bright spot yesterday...

It was a nice day to go Across the Universe. I swear there used to be more holds:

Hope it's luckier than the pink!
It does seem the blue or purple hold up best. I've got one, although this baby is Jim's.

No bugs until the breeze died in late afternoon, as we were sitting on a ledge at the top & discussing the universe. A few black flies reminded us then it was time for a brewpub.

I have gotten masacred on that grassy ledge belay just below the milky way by black flies. you should head up to the upper cliff. Just left of End of the Universe Is a KB and 2 or 3 bolts to a watergroove to a hand crack that turns into a #4 chimny . 180ft super cool pitch to bolted anchor then a 60ft 10a sport climb from there to a second anchor. very cool climb.

Followed my friend Alex up this cool little spire in VT. Lead retro bolted my 5.7X climb on the east face of it's sister spire. It's a really fun place despite the henious bushwhack and relativly short climbs.
