Much joy in Mudville. I figured out how to make it sticky, so y'all should be all set.

Good climbing,

went out with n.e. climber (a.k.a. Scott) to Broad Hill in Granby tonight. We got out there after 6pm and were able to get 5-6 climbs in on two top-ropes before we took everything down and got back in the car at 8:50. Our speed and efficiency even amazes us. Climb on y'all!

If I were to explain this, I'd only be able to tell you how I get there which I'm sure is different than what you would do. It's in the Connecticut Climbing Guide Book in "Other Areas" and it's called Broad Hill (a.k.a. Diamond Ledge). I know that the road it's on is called Broad Hill Rd. which I think is off of Simsbury Rd. If you mapquest it, I'm sure it'll give you the directions. For more specific stuff, just drop into EMS or Country Sports and look at the guidebook. Hell I may even be there, I work at EMS in Simsbury. Adios.

Hey everybody. At least two of us will be at Primeclimb tonight. I'll be around, ask for Josh. I'll be wearing some ugly-ass shorts, and a tan tank-top. Look for the sweating, out of shape guy, with a couple tattoos, falling off easy problems.
I'd like to get to know some of you guys who meet up for after-work rock around Hartford. I know one of the folks coming has not passed their belay test, so if another climber could make it, we could switch belays.
Take it easy all,

Josh

Hey, bigvilegrape, a lack of outdoor partners (and time) has kept me indoors far too much. WHere is Pinnacle? How far from Hartford? I'd love to meet up sometime.

And rigolin, wendella--great meeting you guys yesterday. had a great time. Wendy, we'll have to climb together sometime when I haven't been bouldering for 2 hours first....I might have a touch more stamina.

Great to meet you guys too! Great gym you have there - lots of variety. I'm hoping to come up again next week to meet pcooke; will let you know when. Thanks for climbing with me!!!

p.s. I totally gave up on the bouldering probs after you left. Couldn't find any that I could complete (big surprise ;)

Its half an hourish from hartford... 84 west exit 33 to rt 72 west, exit 2 onto rt 372 east (its a pain in the ass you have to get all the way over at the 72 exit because the 372 exit is the first one up.) take a right at the light, then left onto metacomet road at the first light. you follow that up till you see a parking lot that is blocked off by some boulders. Drive past that until the no parking signs end and park on the street... theres usually at least a car or two there.

My schedual is rather spastic at the moment so I never know when I'm getting out to climb... this whole lack of a job thing is tough; I wind up going all over the place to do thinsg :)

Had fun, hands are raw flesh though and the back aches...I might head there again tonight honestly. But I will be going next week. Anybody down for some bouldering (I'm pretty bad) but hey you meet a new climber. Josh whenever you can teach me the knots I'll drive wherever you need me to. Hope all is well. Nice meeting you wendy! Josh how much for that board?

BVG, thanks for the directions. Let me know when you are heaing over after work hours and I'll see if I can meet you.
Wendy- if you are heading back next week, and no outdoor climbing looks like it's happening, I'll come back down. NO BOULDERING first this time. The problems are pretty tough there, but if you want to work on iot, we can always jsut "add" holds to existing problems until you can work your way up. You were climbing great, especially considereing how new you are to the sport, don't let indoor boulder problems discourage you.

Mike- yup, raw hands, aching back, and wanting to go right back today...sounds about right! Careful not to overdo it. As for the board, let me find out what one goes for new, and I'll proibably ask for like half that, as it is used and all.

Everybody else-- so, when is anybody getting outdoors again for an after-work session anywhere with an hour of hartford?

I'm around though monday if anyone wants to try and meet up and play. As sick of it as I am Pinnicle is good for afterwork sutff since its so close to the road. I actually want to try super mantel and super slab over on the far leftside. THo there is a freaky wall up there so I'm not sure how setting up TR anchors is gonna go for that.

Trip Report: Climbed with kims this Sat. Kim recently moved here from the UK, and is looking to meet people to climb with: both indoors and outdoors. Kim: great climbing with you again! Thanks so much for your patience with a noob – esp. with letting me try those technical routes! We climbed for about 4 hrs. Luckily the weather held. Unfortunately, the air conditioning could have been quite a bit lower for my tastes… Zing.

:lol: :lol: :P

Seriously, thanks to everyone on this board whom I've climbed with. (with whom I've climbed??) I really appreciate your kindness, patience and guidance! Hope someone else has an outdoor trip to report. :wink:

:D Wendy

Greetings everyone,

Never had success with online forums before but here's another shot...

Just got back from a great day at the gunks and have been reminded of how much better I feel after a few pitches. I was also reminded how big some of those crags are and how pathetic my stamina is after a roof or three.

I live in Hartford and work around the state during the week, but am frequently free for afternoons or after work.

I have about 7 years of experience and am pretty motivated. I don't check forums often so please email me at ibarrett@holly.colostate.edu. Please give me a shout because I am all about meeting new people.

cheers,
ian

Hey all,
I climbed with Wendella today at Prime Climb and we had a blast, climbing pretty much until exhaustion. If anyone's interested in meeting up at Prime Climb or an outdoor spot, preferrably somewhere near New Haven since I don't get out til 6 usually, please let me know.

Attention All CT climbers:
Has anyone heard of a place called "West Rocks?" I think it's in new haven or west haven. If anyone knows and possibly interested in going let me know.

As always, I'm in. Gym or rock (depending on weather, time, location, I prefer rock to gym, but my schedule is tough, too.)

When are you thinking?
