Hey Steve!  Thanks for the info.  We will warm up at the North End.  If Diedre is seeping we will head up to the Barber wall. Trying to get crack mileage in anticipation of August trip out west.

Although we certainly need the rain, I'm definitely getting tired of it. You can tell how dry things are by the fact that it's not pooling up anywhere! It looks as if the early part of the week will be nice.

cool and dry, tho not sunny, today. never really got above 50 and it was breezy. a cold front is coming through and it's supposed to be in the low 20's tonight! I brought all my plants in so they don't get killed off!!! hoping to get out climbing the next 2 days, but I guess it's going to be a late start.

What a perfect day for climbing... George and I will be going out soon. This is the kind of day Strand could climb 5.12 slab!

Fun morning at Humphrey's with George Hurley. 60 degree temps were darn close to perfect for thin face and hard slab climbing.

Bugs?  Blackflies in particular.

There were some black flies over at the North End after noon, but they were not too aggressive and a pretty steady breeze kept us deet free.

got frustrated enough this morning that I went out on the MTB and rode up Town Hall Road to the Mt Eastman Trail. not raining when we started. then started raining and it rained the whole time. then it stopped raining just as we got back to the car. got home and 5 minutes later it started raining cats & dogs!!! go figure...

I like that ride in the early spring and fall.  an easy way to get in 16 mile and some elevation and you can do it in all kinds of weather.

I was happy to find a couple of lines at Sundown that were dry- especially since I'm just starting trad leads! Did "Dad's" on the far left end of Lost Horizon and "Rock Garden".  A few wet spots, but nothing that couldn't be overcome.
