I am out for this weekend with strep.. don't want to get anyone sick, and due to my limited diet of fluids, probably won't be climbing too well anyway. Sorry!

Got out today to Pinnacle, did some leads, did some toproping, all in all a good day with great weather. saw some people when I got there, saw some people when I left, probably the most crowded I've ever seen that place. Good ol' CT climbing.

I'll probably be hitting up prime climb this week for bouldering or if anyone is willing to take me up and out and possibly show me some knots I'll get my harness this week. Take it easy

dudemanbu - hope you're feeling better!!

Well, xvolokos (a fellow CT climber who can be found at G.V. during the week) got me out to the Gunks this weekend to climb with some friends of his. Awesome time! Can't recall ever being so exhausted in my life. (No wonder you ppl are all so thin!) I'll bet we saw license plates from half of the states - clearly a popular climbing destination. (pls forgive me for sounding like such a noob).

Two experiences I wanted to share with you guys:

1). Early in the day we saw a huge dead tree spontaneously crack apart from its root system and go crashing down the mountain. No warning; very abrupt. Thankfully we were above it.

2). Later, two ppl were tr-ing next to us. The climber yelled "falling rock", and a small boulder approx. 8" by 4" slammed down less than a foot from the belayer's head. He wasn't wearing a helmet, and understandably became quite pale.

Note to self: never stand down the mountain from a dead tree and always wear a helmet when belaying. :shock:

If you're toproping, Peters Kill has less loose rock and easier toprope access than the Trapps and Near Trapps...

I might be up for climbing Saturday. What's close for you? I haven't been to sleeping giant yet, I've heard mixed reviews about the climbing.

Hi all, this is my first post on RC.com. I live in Westport and I'm looking for people to go climbing with. I've been climbing for about a year and a half and I'll be at Go Vertical in Stamford tommorrow probably around two o'clock. If there is anyone who would like to meet for some climbing that would be great.

General note.

My schedule for when I'll be at Go-Vertical will most likely be Tuesdays and Thursday evenings around 8PM, for the next 5 week or so. Anyone who's around for the same time slot, feel free to PM me.

More people to climb at Go-Vertical souds great. Mon.-Weds after 6:00 are usually good. Next week is kind of booked but after that we're golden. Is anyone interest in climbing at Pinnacle or Rattle snake Sunday (8/7)? Wouldn't mind getting a group of people together. I know dudeman wanted to get a CT unite climb together.

Scratch Sunday, Monday would be better. All interested in a monday group climb PM me.

Hi wambear1. I also live in Westport and climb at GV, usually on Thursday nights (8 pm to closing), sometimes on Tuesaday nights. Let me know next time you are planning to go.

Thought I'd chime in. This is a great idea. I've been visiting CT for twenty years, and have always looked for climbing partners.

Mostly ripping it up at the New River Gorge and Seneca Rocks right now, but will be around near the end of the month and would love to meet people and climb.

My local is Branford. I've climbed a lot at Ragged, which doesn't seem to have been mentioned so far. It's got a lot of climbs, and they've done considerable work fixing it up.

Pinnacle once, Cathole Pass once. The Gunks a lot. That place is a mecca, the crossroads of eastern climbing. 2 1/4 hours from Branford. Not bad at all.

Mike Burke, we've e-mailed in the past and have never gotten together. Hopefully soon.

All my best regards for your efforts. It's wonderful.

Anyone up for climbing tomorrow Sat. 8/6 or 8/7???
I have only been out a few times this year and absolutely can not wait any longer. I have been traveling lately and finally have some time off of work. The weather looks sweet for tomorrow. If there are any laid back decent climbers who are serious about climbing this weekend please reply!

I know you have never seen me on this site before so here is a quick background:
located 10min from Ragged but willing to travel.
15yrs on/off climbing experience (mostly sport in CO,CA,OR,MT)
Have brand new 70m rope :D and sport gear
pathetically unconditioned and a bit rusty, probably would have to stay below 5.11 for now. However, I'll try anything on top rope.
easy to get along with and willing to climb 5.8-5.12 with any decent person who knows what an ATC is and how to use it.

Hey guys...LTNS. Sorry I haven't been around, but still not in a position to put the time that is needed into this sport at this time. Not sure if I ever will, but I still have the bug, so we'll just have to wait and see. Glad to see the CT thread has been made sticky.
