The White Mountain Report: May 23rd, 2019
Like the rest of the country, we're in this weather roller coaster. But at this point at least we're not having tornadoes, floods or forest fires. So far! All we've have to contend with so far is rain. And as annoying as that can be, I can deal with that. I just have to be prepared and able to get out on the good days. [wry grin] This week the really good day was yesterday, Wednesday and of course I reached out to the boss, Brad White. And fortunately he was able to take the afternoon off.

Do we really need another guidebook for the White Mountains? From what I see I would have to answer that in the affirmative!

Route of the Moment

Finesse  -  5.10c

While fitted with 6 bolts, it's hardly a sport route. The climbing doesn't get easy until you're over the overlap at the top! The first ascensionists worked on the climb for several weeks in late November, finally sending the line one morning just as it started to snow. You can put a 1.5 Friend before the 1st bolt and additional gear between the 5th and 6th as well as above the 6th bolt under the upper overlap/roof. Small wires and TCU's may be useful.

One Of Our Articles: A Climber's Library (part 1)
When I first began climbing I had no idea there was such a thing as climbing literature. A few years into it, I was hanging out with all these AMC types. It seemed they were all a hundred years old and knew a lot more than me. I made a fool of my self in a conversation when I admitted to not knowing who Fred Becky was
