I'll be there, regardless; I have an AMGA class that weekend, and it's rain or shine.

Good luck. :)

I'm in the flatlands of Michigan for another week and am nursing a finger to boot, so I can only climb vicariously. What'd you all get onto this past weekend?

Not a damned thing.

I injured my shoulder playing keeper in a soccer game on Friday night; couldn't move my arm all day Saturday, but went up anyway so that my partner would have someone to at least belay them on whatever. Ended up taking them through "ground school", so the day certainly wasn't wasted; I was outside, the weather was beautiful, and while I wasn't actually climbing I was doing something that involved climbing.

Anyone else?

Yea, I was going to Allamuchy on Sunday for some TRing. I ended up stepping around the pile of rope and gear in my hallway as I cleaned my house all day. :P

Sorry to hear about the shoulder. I miss my days as goal keeper :)

I had to work both weekend days, but I was able to fanagle last Friday free. I went up to Peterskill and tried to do some bouldering(I am a weakling chicken, couldn't even pull off a V0). I did come upon a traverse that I was able to do so easily I was praying nobody would see me......(only saw one other party out there the whole day. very nice). I referred to it as the "Preschool Traverse." I suppose I should have tried to do it no-hands; that would at least be a challenge.....next time. And, I walked the cliffline, which was a good thing to do to get to know the place a little bit. I've always only followed others around.

Careful on those clifflines, they really weren't kidding when they said the copperheads are out en force this season!

I set up a beautiful anchor unknowingly ontop of one very-disgruntles 2-footer this weekend. Tai went to clean a hex and I said, "Yo, watch out for that snake" at which point he cleaned with even more caution. That sucker wasn't too happy at us disrupting his nap, thought he was going to bite the hex for awhile! (that Xmas hex is cursed I tell ya.....)

The weather up in New England was to die for this past weekend. Although a little hot and buggy, Rumney was fantastic Thursday-Saturday. Went up to the Franconia Notch on Friday to give Moby Grape a go but got shut down by lack of big gear on Reppys Crack. Wont make the mistake leaving the big cams in the car next time. Left Lake Winnipisauke around 2 pm on Sunday and made it back in the Gunks with enough time to cruise up city lights with a great view of the city lights.

Hopefully this week stays relatively dry at the gunks; Im really looking forward to getting some pitches in before heading down south on a scuba diving trip...

Oh and I have enough to worry about without your fabricated copperhead stories Tai... :shock:

Nothing fabricated about this one, Jeff. It was definitely a good-sized copperhead, and it was definitely not happy to see us. However, we left it alone and it returned the favor.

As Kim said, though, the snake looked like it was going to strike the hex as I was attempting to clean it; I was jiggling the hex to try to loosen it, and the snake didn't appreciate it. I stopped for a little while, the snake relaxed, then I started again and the snake decided that it wasn't worth the venom and slithered further back into the crack.

^ Use the marvelous rc.com *definitions tool* and run your curser over the word Copperhead in the above post.

Talk about specieism - I don't see any need for promoting animal cruelty......jeeeez.....

One of the larger cracks on the top of the cliff, just over Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Nutmaster, at Peterskill. Large enough a crack to put a #7 hex in, bomber.

It wasn't there when Kim built the anchor, I swear! Darned snake!

I'll be up there this weekend, but I've got a TRSM lesson that will preclude me climbing on Saturday and a fucked-up shoulder that will preclude me climbing on Sunday. After that, it'll be a few weeks - familial obligations, and all that. July 4th weekend - maybe. Drop me a line with your availability.

As a storm approached yesterday, I left a rappel anchor (cordelette and locking biner) at the top of "moby dick" to clean my gear on the route . Use them in good health. I know its not very enticing considering all the slings and biners left on twilight zone, but I rather not suggest to beginning leaders on "andrew" that this is a good rappel route. I suggest climbing "android" to "moby dick", which was a pretty awesome link up.

Hey -

Ralph (from Tuttenhill) has a post on Gunks.com, looking for belayers to work a corporate party in NYC on 6/25. If anyone need some cash, and fits the bill, check it out. It's in the Job Listings forum.

sorry seek, I already snatched that shit. if you can describe it to me, I may be kind enough to return it. I should warn you though it has already been used in a few slackline setups

Hi folks! This is a general introduction since I haven't posted any other partner requests this year. I'm in the Gunks a lot (both weekdays and weekends for the time being), in case anyone is looking to partner up.

This is my 4th season leading in the Gunks. My leading level varies - I can probably get up, on lead, routes from 5.8+ to easy 5.10 but may sketch out and hangdog depending on how sustained or devious the route is. I rarely fall, but have been known to hangdog. On the lead, I have onsighted a small handful of 5.9-/5.9, one 5.9+, and one 5.10a. Have transportation, rack, and rope.

It's getting into the hot part of the summer and right now I'm interesting in easy bouldering in the shade or easy trad, a few levels below my lead limit or on moves I'm fairly comfortable with. If you're looking for a partner, I'm happy to follow anything you lead and there's a good chance I can take over if you need to bail. But I'd prefer not to HAVE to take over, so please stay reasonably within your physical limits. Mental limits are negotiable - we all have our off days.

I'm saving my virgin NA for a lead on Shockley's; what can I say....I'm still a gumby traditionalist. But....it's going to be a while before I can pull that one off, and the op to be naughty is enticing. It's a good thing I have waaaaay to much ego and pride to do the hokey pokey(ya put yer whole self in...) on a line I would have no chance in hell of climbing with a modicum of grace.......
