The White Mountain Report: Oct 10th, 2014
Very busy week which has included finally finishing a big software project, some great climbing at a place I've been many times over the years and just revisited, some great riding in the woods behind Whitehorse Ledge and a very fun night of music at McGrath's Tavern last night. I always feel so warm and fuzzy this time of the year; because of all the fall colors I suppose. It's tough to stay inside when it's like this, and I do everything I can to avoid it. We did have a full day of rain earlier in the week that prompted me to finish my web project, which allowed be the time to get out and play. To paraphrase an old canard, I just gotta make software while it the sun don't shine! [wry grin]

X4 Camelots
product  picture
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?

Route of the Moment

Old Crow -  5.9

The crux looks harder than it actually is. When toproping it prior to the FA Al kept saying that he didn't think it was going to go, but obviously it did. On the afternoon of the FA there were lots of large black crows flying over.

Quotes From the Ledge:
Climbing for speed records will probably become more popular, a mania which has just begun. Climbers climb not just to see how fast and efficiently they can do it, but far worse, to see how much faster and more efficiently they are than a party which did the same climb a few days before. The climb becomes secondary, no more important than a racetrack. Man is pitted against man.

Selected Ice Conditions effective November 18, 2014
Here we go folks. The Ice report is on line for the 2014/2015 season. I'm starting to see some good pix of stuff on the Mountain, the Dike has been done this week and it's starting to get cold even here in the Valley. With another week of consistently cold temps things should start to form quickly. Stay tuned...
