Comments: Andrew could you be flesh out the direction a bit? I live near Devens but have no idea where the disc golf course is. Thanks

Comments: It's the New Wave of climbing Tiff. Climb your favorite cracks now before they are bolted to make them safe. And just remember "you don't have to clip them if you don't want to".

Comments: Did the first two pitches of STH and then linked to Fireworks via a short Class 3/4 scramble. Fun and varied climbing.

Comments: Thanks for the route addition and history. I was telling Al Rubin about the route this weekend during a general Crow Hill discussion. He was surprised he had never heard of it. I couldn't remember the name or details. Now I can point him here. Not that either of us are ever likely to do it!

Comments: I think they are trying to bolt Dune. However where some of the bolts are placed don't seem to coincide with the route as I remember it from watching Zeb Enberg do it several years ago from the ground up with gear. He was belayed by his Dad who also had led it, albeit a number of years before, ground up on gear.

Get out and get your runs on Diagonal, CroMag, Jane, Tarzan, Watusi, Birds of Prey, Intertwine, Thin Line, etc. now before you have to do them while staring at bright and shiny hardwa... more >>

Comments: Hey Arthur,

Yeah, the approach would be a bitch in a wheelchair. Let me know when you would like to get out. We will get your ass up there and on to a couple of climbs.

Comments: Okay Seth, I'm confused.

...and the roof is harder than that: 5.9+.

Are you applying North Conway route grading and implying the roof is harder than 5.10b? Or am I misinterpreting your comment and you are grading the roof as a Gunks 5.9+? I assume the latter but always keep an open mind. I only question it since you are usually very precise and correct in your sentence structure. You haven't had a glass or two of wine before posting by chance?

Comments: Dan congrats on a good job at getting one of the best, albeit short, 5.6 roof pitches in the Gunks done in good style! But "C'mon man!" let's tone down all the beta spray. Life is an adventure or nothing at all. Let others experience the joy of figuring it out for themselves!

Comments: Peter lol at your comment. Just a week ago Sunday I once again thoroughly embarrassed myself at the pod and had to finally aid through it. In retrospect I think I may now have a way to get through it. Of course I have said that half a dozen times in the past and proved myself wrong!

Comments: Denis great shot, as usual! Led it several years ago. I was trying to remember exactly where I took the whip back then as I was belaying my partner on Snooky's on Sunday. Now I remember! Need to get back on it and get it clean.

Comments: The rockfall reported by JD earlier involved the first bit of Birds Of Fire. Neither Watusi nor The Chimney were affected by the fall. The rock that fell was pretty large and made up the roof of the cave-like feature at the start of Birds Of Fire and the rock face that made up the left side of the crack above it. The essential nature of the climb is not greatly changed. In fact, the elimination of the awkward cave start makes, at least in my opinion, a more aesthetic start and can be nicely prot... more >>
