October climbing on the Appalachian Trail

Average Rating = 3.20/5 October climbing on the Appalachian Trail

It's not the Gunks or anything but a nice little piece of rock for PA and you get a nice walk through the woods to boot. This is me leading The Nose at Pole Steeple.

High Exposure, Sept. 30 2006

Average Rating = 4.00/5 High Exposure, Sept. 30 2006

My daugter Ashley and I have looked forward to this climb for a long time and waited until fall to do this climb just so the trees would be turning. We were the first ones on the route that day and started up the route when the sun was rising and there was still fog in the valley.

More Traffic Jam

Average Rating = 3.50/5 More Traffic Jam

At the bottom of this crack you can stem off the back wall a little--I think that makes it easier than the 5.7 is the guide book.

Sharks Tooth View from the Gash

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Sharks Tooth View from the Gash

This was the view from the gash on a rainy morning in late August. Weather report was bad but I had just flown from PA and was so eager to climb we walked up there anyway...."just in case." The weather reports were actually optimistic about afternoon showers. It was foggy in the dark and raining by sun up. There were a couple of breaks (such as the one in the photo) but the rock was too wet to get on it. Sharks Tooth was impressive though. It's very high on my hit list and will get it eventually. If you are interested in the climb, see this cool video at: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1075043988470071538

Her Nickname is Banana....

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Her Nickname is Banana....

so a climb called Banana is a natual for her. Anna actually had a little trouble with this climb--thew off-balance crux move near the top seemed a little stiff for a 5.6 when I led it but it's a nice warmup/approach for higher climbs such as Gunsight to South Peak.

Traffic Jam

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Traffic Jam

The book says Traffic Jam is a popular route, but it's also on the rap route I used every day at Seneca and I never saw anyone climb it. After leading up Critter Crack I ended up very near the top of Traffic Jam so I set up a top rope and gave it a try with my daughter. Nice little climb.

Batman and Robin...and afternoon thunderstorms

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Batman and Robin...and afternoon thunderstorms

The books says 4 pitches but my buddy Sean wrapped the first two into one pitch with very little rope drag--just kind of a tough hanging belay at the top. The ledge behind that big flake would have been better. I led the last two pitches and they turned out tougher than I thought since a sudden thunder storm turned the rock wet and snotty.

Mt. Meeker with close-up of Flying Butress

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Mt. Meeker with close-up of Flying Butress

The Flyng Butress is the center most prominant rib on the northeast face of Mt. Meeker. It is to the southwest of the Ship's Prow and the East Face of Long's Peak. This is the view from Lumpy Ridge, on a clear August morning. I estimate the distance is about 10 miles as the crow flies.

Greg starting the first 5.8 pitch of Flying Butress.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Greg starting the first 5.8 pitch of Flying Butress.

This is Greg just getting started on the first pitch of the Flying Butress. The climb starts in a 5.8 crack that thins to a 5.9 crack and then eventually evaporates into a 5.10d face climb (20 feet between 2 fixed pitons).

Flying Butress Closeup

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Flying Butress Closeup

The climb starts on the first large ledge below the first section of vertical face. it's just above and to the right of center of this photo. 4th class scramble to that point. The infamous 5.9 roof is clearly visible just above skyline on p3 above the next obvious ledge.
