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)

The long wallk probably helps too :)
Are you talking about the Fasulo guidebook? I have been there a few times and it seemed like it did a pretty good job, what am I missing?

It compleatly ignores porcupine hole, which has some awsome routes on it. It ignores the nautalus section of greenwall which has some of my favorite routes in the state on it, and it doesnt cover most of rattlesnake.

the nickles guidbook has 39 routes at porcupine from 5.2-5.11
27 at green wall from 5.2-5.9
it has stuff at will warens den, but i never bother with routes there cuz its a pain in the arse.
59 routes at rattlesnake from 5.3-5.12

the faslo book lists a total of lik 33 routes for all of rattlesnake mountain.

wow, Where is the nautilis section of green wall?
Ken Nichols guide probably also says that you can lead on tied off hooks right?
I guess I should do some more exploring around that area.
thanks for the smack down :)

I dont like ken nickles, but his guidebook is the most compleate one out there for CT. Too bad its out of print, and he wont go for a re-print.

At the bottom of greenwall the nautalus section is the far left. There are four 5.9s on it. its kind of on an upper terrace... right to the left of flare for adventure and green goddess.

Whats wrong with Ken Nichols? What did he ever do? I'm suprised this CT climbers thread has made it this far without his mentioning, I can't even start a conversation with anyone at a CT crag without him coming up in conversation.

oh well

yeah, I am kind of trolling you
the guy is a nut-bar, really crazy
but he was nice enough when I met him in person
not the puppy killer that so many make him out to be
kind of an jerk though, quick to comment on others climbing
and a total ass for that massachusetts incident

see ya later
we should go climbing sometime
off to class

Yesterday Dudemanbu and I headed up to Main Cliff, good climbing, I retreated off of Tower Crack(5.7) because it was too dark..
NOT because my offwidth technique sucks..
I could've cruised..
yup thats it.
Well anywho, he did a fine lead up Wet Wall
and we did a couple of laps up various routes on the Wiessner Slab
Ended up stumbling around in the dark on the hike back down
still don't know how I got off trail
oh well
good afternoon climbing

The problem with that off width was the massive number 5 camalot in your way. It definitely wasn't those wide old hips. Nope. Also, too dark. Yep.

Too bad we didn't harvest those hikers. They looked tasty.

we could put up ads at the gyms. "interested in climbing outdoors while there's still light and warmth left? we don't care if you've never been. We don't care if you smell. We just want people to climb with. Go to www.rockclimbing.com forums, and in the US-east coast forum section, there's a little thread called the CT climbers thread. Post. Hours to days later, you'll be climbing outdoors!"

The problem with that being that we can't bring anyone who climbs harder than us.
That would make us look bad and hurt my ego :)

yeah, I just started ice last season, its strange.
I think its draw is IN the suffering, but I don't know, really, its strange.
If you don't want to get into, then don't try it.
Rock Climbing is cheap, the cover charge for ice is a whole lot steeper
