Went to Wolf Rock on Friday(in the rain) with a partner that goes to UCONN, nice little area there. Short, but really quality routes. It would be a great place to bring beginners. Led up a 5.6 and a 5.2 and we top-roped a 5.5 or so, the rock was kinda wet, so it made the friction moves interesting. All and all a nice little area, I do plan on going back. Lots of great leads for a beginner leader too, which is rare for CT

climbed at Logtown Quarries, about an hour south of cleveland this weekend. It was wet. It also literally smelled like shit. Friction sandstone climbing is not good when wet. Also, the majorty of the routes are 5.10+ which is very difficult when wet. Despite these things had fun and did a few good routes. Free for climbing wednesday if anyone wants to meet up.

Hi J-
I'm looking to get back on the rock myself. I haven't climbed all year and just came back from a Sterling Rope all women climbing weekend in N. Conway. I started climbing 5/04 and went about 6-8 times, love Pinnacle and the Gunks, have been to Wolf Rock, want to check out other areas...like Ragged Mt -Southington.

I'm pretty much a beginner...I have my own harness, helmet, shoes, chalk bag. I don't have a rope or rack. I have rapelled once and cleaned once...both in the gunks. I'm interested in partnering up with people who would like to climb locally...and anyone who is patient and is more advanced with a bunch of tricks would be great.

Hi-
I started climbing in 5/04 and went 6-8 times in 2004. Gunks, Pinnacle, Wolf Rock and Rumney. I range trad top-roping up to a 5.6 or 5.7. I've rapped once, cleaned pro once. I was in N. Conway this past weekend climbing for the first time this year and I NEED to get out on some rock before it gets too cold. Also interested in partners who would like to work out at the Rock Gym in Manchester.

Have all the basics...helmet, harness, shoes, chalk bag. Need someone with rope and rack. Interested in checking out some good local climbing and revisiting Gunks, Pinnacle and Wolf Rock.

Hi, I forgot to introduce myself.

My name is Sandra. Someone asked about Rock gyms. I've been to Stone Age in Manchester (my home turf) but have heard about Prime Climb in Wallingford and just found Ollie's in Mystic. I'm interested in taking the top rope class at Ollies 10/1 for $100.

I've climbed Pinnacle, Wolf Rock (UConn), Gunks and Rumney. Just did a weekend at Whitehorse in N. Conway NH.

My climbing shoes are mint green. I have neither rope nor rack, only the lowly harness/helmet/chalk bag. I just found out Sterling rope makes a hot pink women's climbing rope...so watch out!

Would love to get together with other CT climbers to partner up for some climbing.

Hello,
Anyone is interested in climbing Sat or Sun possibly at Ragged or Pinnacle, etc? I have full sport/toproaping gear and partial lead rack. Would like to get on some 10 or 11 tr's (Vanishing point???) or could clean on lead. Not opposed to climbing 8's & 9's either, just want to get out and climb. Easy-going, friendly, and mostly sane.

p.s. Sean, you around?

Take care,

Bolts in CT, that'll be the day. Jut used to listing my gear that way, I guess. It does give a better idea of my climbing background though. I live in SW Montana and climb mostly sport. Oh my god, it's gorgeous out. What the f*&#! am I doing inside on this dreaded machine. Hope to see some of you out on the rock this weekend.

rattlesnake is my favorite spot to climb in the state. the new guidebook doesn't really cover it well at all. (i'm actually okay with that since it keeps traffic from climbers down)
