The White Mountain Report: Aug 21st, 2014
One great thing about living up here in the North Country is that there are so many places to climb other than Cathedral, Whitehorse and Rumney. I know many readers live other places so they are really excited about doing the Valley classics, but for someone like me who lives here, another run up Thin Air or Slabs Direct is like putting a gun to my head - figuratively of course. [wry grin] Other than when I've been out guiding this summer, I've been trying to go to places that I've never been to or ones that I haven't climbed at in a long time. Mt Forest in Berlin was a place I've never been to before, Lost Ledge was a place I used to frequent 10 years ago but hadn't been to in at least 5 years, and tho I was involved in putting up several routes at Found Ledge I hadn't been up there in at least 2 years.

X4 Camelots

The new X4 Camelots are BD's latest addition to their 4-camming device collection. They claim that they are great for everything from big-wall to your basic day-to-day trad climb. So do they hold up to expectations, can they be a replacement for the classic C4's, and how do they compare to the ever popular C3's?

Quotes From the Ledge:
This is a group of people I used to go walking with. (long pause) That's me on the left. (even longer pause) On the right is the woman I married, Audrey. (very long pause, speaker looks at shoes) Which just goes to show that danger lurks where you least expect it.
—Don Whillans commenting on a B&W slide showing a group of smiling hikers
