Le Gourmet Direct

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Le Gourmet Direct

Me leading Le Gourmet Direct. I wasn't sure where this route went--I could see old pitons along two different lines and ended up with some very gnarly rope drag that could have been done away with easily with use of some longer runners. I'd say I did a pretty shitty job leading it.

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

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

Climbers on various routes, Near Trapps, Disneyland/Kansas City area.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Climbers on various routes, Near Trapps, Disneyland/Kansas City area.

This photo was taken Sunday May 28. I was climbing with my kids over at the AMC slab and my daughter Ashley took this photo of several climbers of different routes over at Near Trapps. One of the climbers looked to be wearing a yellow cape? Not red or black so I definately know it wasn't Superman or Batman. If you have a tendancy to climb with a yellow cape, and were on Near Trapps that day, this photo is of you. I've never been over to that side of the road, so it's difficult for me to say exactly what route each climber is one--and since there are several climbers on several routes, it's impossible to assign this to a particular route. If you know what route exactly these people are on, PM me and I'll update this info.

Three Pines -- an easy Gunks Classic

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Three Pines -- an easy Gunks Classic

This is a good photo of the giant pine at the belay station on three pines, and the view looking up at the second pitch. Probably thousands of climbers have anchored on this old tree--let's hope it hangs in there for another 30-40 years!

Ashley on the belay station

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Ashley on the belay station

This is my awesome 14-year-old daughter Ashley on the belay ledge on The Rib: Easter, 2006. It was my first multi-pitch lead climb, and her first time climbing second on a multi-pitch climb. The climbing was easy but as you know, we had quite a bit of stuff to figure out while learning a new route (Steele's guidebook as a reference--plus roclimb's advice on rockclimbing.com). Also thanks to Walt at Dingman's campground who gave us some good beta.

This is a shot of me climbing one of the easier routes at Otter Cliffs, Acadia National Park. Yes, I am a NOOB but learning as I go. Acadia has quite a few easy routes so it was perfect for a top-roper like me. Next year I hope to try a little trad!

This is a class 4 scramble up the tourist route of Mount Temple--elevation @12,000 feet, July 22, 2004. In the background you can see Valley of the 10 peaks (near Morraine Lake). Didn't get any good shots on top because it was snowing but this shot I took of my brother shows the terrain about halfway up.
