Comments: Hey Gavin thanks for sharing your videos of bouldering at Pawtuckaway. Haven't been up there in years. Gives me some motivation to get the pad in the car and here up there.

Comments: So why not delete the photo?

Why would you?

Comments: BTW, the anchor on Intertwine is now version two of a double bolt anchor and quite acceptable. The first bolt anchor was less than ideal and was redone.

Comments: Who maintains the hardware at Crow Hill? I'd like to connect with them.

No one anymore, or at least not on a regular basis, but then there isn't that much hardware to maintain. Excluding of course the bolts on Joey's Folly, AKA Dune.

Comments: Nice shot Seth. Looking good Gail! Dog-Stick-Ridge is another excellent linkup if you haven't done it yet. I found its first pitch to have its own interesting move or two as well.

Comments: Why?

BTW the photo is so murky that unless one has stood on the horizontal and agonized about how to protect the "move" you would have no idea what you are referring to.

Comments: Geez! Okay Donald, you have my respect. 65 mph wind gusts and not all that warm. I wimped and curled up in the morning room with a book and a fourth cup of coffee.

Comments: Totally bogus!!!! Everyone knows the Irish Rivera is up in the south side of Winnipesaukee. At least for New England. If you really want to get accurate, it is Breezy Point in Queens. But you better be NYPD or NYFD. Up the Rebels!

Comments: Once you head up the RF corner the belay is 12 feet up. Rope drag is not an issue. It is a short pitch.

Comments: Isara cool post in two ways. Firstly it is a great, exhilarating crux. Thanks for sharing your joy in pulling through it. Secondly it is a good example of one of the tenets of climbing ethics, "You will bring all strays into the fold." Gud on ya to Jazz and Mylene for their good deed. Definitely building some karma points.

Comments: It worked out. Turns out I knew the other leader. He knew I was faster so I zipped up the arete keeping my rope on the left and protected the overhang off to the left. Once I was clear he finished and brought his second up who was somewhat inexperienced. Once she had gained the roof and I started bringing my second up with just a minimal delay. Probably best on a weekend to check the situation on YR first and gauge the timing of the likely traffic.

Comments: Nice photo! Good link-up. Do you have one with a bigger field of view? Pretty cool position just below the Yellow Ridge arete. I surprised someone one day on Yellow Ridge by popping up at the base of the arete as they were just about to gain it.

Comments: I don't know John. Sure looks like Andrew to me. What makes you think it isn't Andrew? Besides, very unlikely that Mr. Peterson would mislabel a Gunks photo.

Comments: JD, if it is the block I'm thinking of, I don't think it is going anywhere soon. I always try to get a small cam or a nut in behind the block when leading Watusi before making the move up right and over the it.

Haven't been up Watusi in a while, is the old, ratty, corroded pin still at the crux? I have clipped it in the past but never trusted it. Always backed it up with an medium-sized cam in the horizontal off to the left.
