Same here in southern Maine. I managed to get out this time, too. Great day.

Sure was. We made it to the South Buttress and had a great day..did The Last Unicorn and South Buttress Direct, while friends worked on Wonder Wall. Om lead the last pitch of SBD in great style, including the dirty, run out section above the old rusted bolts. We are planning on going up later and replacing those nasty 1/4" ers at the top of the last pitch of SBD and possibly an anchor, as there is only a little pine tree at the top now, and give the top a scrub. The route has some of the best climbing I have been on on that wall and deserves some TLC. The pitch below badly needs some lose stuff tossed off when somebody has a spotter to make sure it is safe. We upgraded one of the anchors on the Last Unicorn, removing the tat tied directly into the hangers and replaced with new steel quicklinks. We'll do the same to others there when I have the drill to replace some of the anchor bolts first. Those old SMC hangers can't even take a 1/2 inch quicklink through them
