I climb pretty much anything up to 5.10 on toprope, and sport 5.9's.. i don't do much trad leading, but a little bit. I'll be bringing all my stuff. Maybe getting there around 11:30 though.

there is gumby to greatness and the graduate on the lower crag, and like 6 5.10 slab routes in the middle of the upper ledges.
gumby to greatness follows just to the right of a massive moss covered section, the graduate is about 20ft left of that

The best thing to do would be to call around to all the rock gyms/stores. Go to the EMS/REI websites and get the CT store locations (and maybe the NY ones too, since you're in fairfield). Also call around to all the rock gyms. Their info is listed on this site.

Anyone up for climbing tomorrow (wednesday)? Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Or sunday? Since john moved i'm having real problems getting out.

The only two places I know of in Fairfield county are in Fairfield on mountain laural road. Mountain laural is some what close to a lake but not really. Mostly bouldering.
The other place is in greenwitch, called ladins rock. it can be a little tricky to find if you have never been there. There are only a couple of routes.
I climb at GV once in a while, if I'm in I'll look you up.

dev and i went to whitestone today, practically in my backyard, trad style of course. First lead was more of a 5.0 junk climb, but after that we did three pretty decent leads. Dev pulled an interesting layback reachy crux over a roof no problem on the lead, so naturally following i fell on it. Did my first lead on my own gear (a few borrowed slings and a number 1 camalot withstanding.) All in all not bad

He has it all wrong, it was a 5.0 adventure climb, I knew that because all of the dirty and crap on the rock and in the cracks :-)

yeah, so...
I'm an early riser. I hate it, my job kinda forced me into it. Are any of you early risers?
....
yeah, I didn't think so.
But whatabout for climbing?
On sunday, in the morning, early like 6:30-7:00 I can go climbing.
Till about 11:30. Then I get to go to work.
Is anyone up for some early morning rock?
Its great.
You should all come.
later
dev
edit: I swear there will be no 5.0 "adventure" climbs

It's been a while since I've been on here and it's nice to see that there is a CT climbers thread now too. Just thought I'd put a post up looking for climbers in the NE area of CT. My wife and I typically climb at the Monks near UConn, Pinnacle and some great but low key places in Western MA. Right now I'm down with top roping, late afternoon to early evening at the Monks during the week fits into my schedule. Saturdays all day and Sunday afternoons I'm down with going farther afield. Have a look at my profile for more info, my wife may be able to join us if her schedule permits but right now she's told me to get out and climb anyway I can before the snow flies. I'll search the threat myself for people and if anyone who is interested drop me a line.
