Comments: Actually for the first 15 or so years I only cragged on weekdays(maple and american fork get too crowded on weekends), it wasnt until I moved east where everyone is a slave to the man that it became weekends. Honestly though, I've been known to belay with a grigri with no hand on the brake side while not wearing a helmet on top of clipping in the wrong direction. I guess I like the thrill of it all.

Comments: This is funny for two reasons.

- ratings at the Gunks maybe be on the YDS but I would never compare the ratings there to any other crag I've ever been to. I'd go as far to say that the ratings there are almost a number grade off most places. I do agree the B.Beetroots would be a 10b at the Gunks though. Guy Bon wouldnt know this since he has never done a route there! Hell, most of the 5.10 cracks I've done in Yosemite would get downrated to 5.9 at the gunks.

Comments: easy to set up by climbing over from the top of Drill Wavin and a fun TR, the danger is only from placing protection of any kind.

Comments: The whole roof section in the middle of this route seems like it could shed THOUSANDS of pounds of rocks quickly if the wrong piece of rock was pulled on, especially after a good freeze/thaw period. Its a fun TR but I personally would NEVER recommend someone belay from the bottom since there is absolutely nowhere to hide if a rock came loose.

Comments: nice, I've never had a great spot on that face so I never topped it out. The frontside has a decent line or two as well.

Comments: I pulled on it a few years back, its in there pretty good. I did put a giant skull&crossbones on it with chalk just to scare people away from gangbanging it on TR

Comments: I've hiked the trails looking for more, found a bunch of steep highballs but nothing too tempting. there is more rock along the power lines and towards the river that looks like it could be worth the hike.

Comments: bring cams for the horizontal, anything from a #1 camalot to a #3 fits well for the crux, big stoppers work too.

Comments: Just paint some pretend bolts on the face and do some make believe clipping. Nobody chops paintjobs in CT.
