Comments: getting used to climbing in the cold has helped keep me sane during our long New England winters... but if everyone did it we wouldn't have the cliffs to our selves I guess haha

Comments: Yeah Torie and I both still lean toward 5.6 using this beta. But no one likes a sandbag so I just figured I'd change it to 5.7, keep people happy.

I knew an old duffer who was fond of saying "Common sense isn't so bloody common anymore now is it." sounded great in his British accent.

Comments: Oh cool, nope my line was to the left of that through the crack. I wasn't at all concerned about FA credit just saying that I had chosen not to report climbing on the cliff cause I didn't think the locals would like it... Though as I said the trail might make my old point moot... now we both have lines to do haha

Comments: Sorry I'm late to this party. And I hate to be that guy but, I did climb much of the line you are referring to many years ago though it used to be solid rock all the way until they came and chipped it all to hell (grumble grumble).I decided not to report it cause I didn't think I should encourage other people to climb right off the road, maybe the trail makes it a better place to climb? I don't know. Anyway, glad you are out adventuring :)

Comments: right on... I do similar but I start on 2 nice crimps inches apart that are a little hidden just left of the arête... I smear my right foot about 10 inches off the ground... left foot smear/edge where you described... I hit that quartz mound with right then left hand... left foot on the arête, right foot on a decent small lump on the smooth wall just right of the arête... I then reach out wide right in to the other corner for a good solid hold... foot on far right wall... left foot up to perc... more >>

Comments: Just barely missed the onsight yesterday... really nice technical climb... I managed to remove the old anchor junk on top and cleaned it up a tad but it seems like it will need upkeep on the top out... Didn't have energy left and fell at the top on my second go as well... can't wait to finish it up sometime soon :)

Comments: This thing will be haunting my dreams for a bit after falling on the last real hard move today exiting the upper corner to gain a jug. Motivation to get back after it soon armed with improved beta and rested muscles.

Comments: I FOUND IT!
I climbed this obscurity on self belay top rope, Being alone seems appropriate to the name of the climb :)
The line is actually pretty cool if a bit wandering. I think we are very used to direct lines through obstacles in sport climbing rather than finding paths around them as is common in trad climbing.

I was able to free the one point of aid at mid 5.11... If I were to call it I would say the all free climb is about 5.11b... Small sharp crimps and pretty serious core tension got ... more >>

Comments: I think matt bolted it but someone else got the FA... it's in the 2009 book...
And it looked like the hanger was missing to me but I'd have to get up close to see... that might just be a stub left over from bolting process

Comments: Maybe a better system of ropes off to the left side would do the trick. As well as fixing a couple of spots to be easier to pass...
