Thanks for the cool video Adam! It looks like those other climbs you did are in the Black and White Rocks area? Anyway, I'd love to know where they are so they can be logged. The B&W area is sometimes written off, but I know there are a bunch of cool problems around those crags.

If you're looking to climb sometime, I'm always looking to show folks around the Fells and Lynn Woods. Apr 16, 2017

Anyone know the rock type here? From the googling I've been able to do it seems like mostly igneous/metamorphic (see info here: ngmdb.usgs.gov/Geolex/UnitR…) but I'm having trouble finding much info. May 12, 2018

Etha- “Granodiorite” with a “basaltic” dike. I’ve seen it called “diorite” before, which is similar to granite. Pre-glacial volcanic igneous. May 13, 2018
