dry warm rock
« on: February 25, 2003, 05:19:23 pm »
I was driving past Humphrey's Ledge yesterday, Monday, and there was someone up on cliff in the sun. I'll bet it was 40 up there. pretty soon it will be time to head over to the South Buttress of Whitehorse. maybe I'll snowshoe over there to check it out next week. I was at the Crack In The Woods last Thursday and it was obvious that folks have been climbing over there all winter. there was a place where a fire was set up and the trail was totally packed out.

Went to the main cliff at Rumney last Friday.  Trail was packed out and there were several people climbing there.
Rock was warm and dry (once you got past the shower that was hitting the ground several feet out from the base).  Everyone was in t-shirts which was perfectly comfortable.  Just a few weeks before that cliff gets closed for the falcons (assuming the usual schedule) so now is the time.

Anyone else know of some other dry, sun soaked rock for some early season climbing????
