Hi Everyone,

I am looking for some partners!!! I am planning a trip to NH from May 18th through the 22nd. I am looking to climb one day at Cannon, Cathedral Ledge, Whitehorse Ledge, and do the NE Ridge on the Pinnacle in Huntington. I can lead 5.8 and am looking to do the super classics at each place. I will be driving from Saratoga NY and will be able to provide all the gear except you, your harness, and your shoes (though I have two spares of each, if you happen to be the right size). I will be camping out each night, somewhere, and plan on climbing early and staying late. I am very technically proficient, fast, and efficient and love climbing with anyone.

Let me know if your interested.

Thanks,

Dave

Bring a massive can of the strongest DEET you can find and a bug suit. You will be eaten alive by blackflies. M Sprague

You'll be fine re: the bugs. My experience climbing N Conway in May has been that the bugs dissipate once you're up on the rock. No headnet required, but you'll appreciate having applied some DEET. I didn't one day last year and my arms were a mess, even just from 10 minutes in the woods. Don MacKenzie

Don, thanks for the positive thoughts on the bugs. I don't really have a choice, its climbing or no climbing and I'd rather climb than sit at home and bitch about the bugs. I'll definitely come prepared with some bug spray (meaning gallons of DEET). Dave Schultz

Dave, sounds like an awesome trip! I would totally get out with you but those are the exact dates I'll be in Yosemite. I just did Moby Grape (again) a couple days ago on Cannon - what an awesome awesome route. You should have an awesome time if the weather holds. Linnaeus

I am really looking at MG as the route at Cannon to do. I can lead 5.8 pretty solid on-sight (Double Crack, Arrow, Son of Easy O, and Ant Line in the Gunks), but I don't want to get on a long sustain 5.8 that would make the day not so enjoyable if I was in survival climbing mode the entire day and not able to really relax and just enjoy it. Any thoughts? Dave Schultz
