Dad's Run Free is a fun climb
It is.  Worst part about it was all the catkin/tree crap on the route that made it hard to smear.  I left a couple sport draws and a couple trad draws a the base because my gear loops were getting full...  I won't do that again!  I had enough gear to anchor in, but I had to do a bit of improvising.  I did figure out when I did Rock Garden that I may need a #4 cam...

I wouldn't bother getting a #4 just for that route. It can be sewn up with nothing larger than a #2, though you can find a place for a #4 if you really wanted  to... If you haven't been out to Lost Ledge yet you should check that place outs. And Rainbow Slabs.

Could anyone provide me with a conditions update for Cannon, Cathedral, and Whitehorse?

Heading over there next week, but a little worried that the lines on Cannon will still be wet :(

Depends on what lines you're interested in. Generally this time of year, Cannon dries out pretty quickly. However after this last week of prolonged rain, I'd give it a few days of decent weather before it's mostly dry.  Stuff like Moby and the Gilman will be fine by the weekend - unless it rains again.

Yet another spectacular day on tap. It feels more like late September than mid-August to me. No bugs either!!!

Troy and I managed another rare outing together at WH today and I don't think the day could have been any better.  Ideal wx, minimal climber traffic, high friction and low gravity (with the exception of Pathfinder's crux; that was not pretty), and a string quartet (?) playing for a wedding down below.

Dude on SoH (?)

If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.

LOL awesome.. I've enjoyed Andy's drumming while on Cathedral, someone's violin while on Humprhey's, but never a string quartet on Whitehorse but I can imagine how it adds to the day!

I got to mow my lawn today :)

Not a positive weather prediction for this weekend!!!

---------

Mount Washington Valley Forecast
Friday, August 30, 2013
4:19 AM
A weak ridge of high pressure will build over the region this morning as a shortwave trough approaches from the northwest for this afternoon. The cresting high will allow for a bit of clearing early on, but as the trough approaches, clouds will once again return. The trough along with hot and humid air in place over the region, will allow for the formation of numerous convective showers and thunderstorms, especially for the northern half of the state by this afternoon. Overnight, stronger convective activity will taper as daytime instability dissipates; however, upslope showers in the north are expected to continue. Saturday, an area of low pressure will approach from the Great Lakes which will spread in more rain showers across the state and will likely bring a round of thunderstorms by the afternoon as a cold front slowly approaches.

Sunday, the cold front will stall over the region allowing for continued instability around the region. This will continue scattered showers and thunderstorms across the region especially as the state remains on the warm side of the frontal boundary. Monday another low will approach from the Great Lakes region, spreading in a warm front for the region. This will make for a warm and humid day with more rain showers spreading in. The hot and humid conditions along with the front will likely bring another round of thunderstorm activity. Wet and unsettled weather will then continue into Tuesday as the low lifts northeast, dragging a cold front in from the west. With numerous days of rain expected, localized flooding may be a concern across the state by the middle of next week.

Saturday: Cloudy w/ rain showers. Thunderstorms likely.
Highs: upper 70sF
Lows: upper 50sF

Sunday: Mostly cloudy w/ a chance of showers and thunderstorms.
Highs: lower 80s; humid
Lows: upper 50sF

Monday: Cloudy w/ rain showers likely.
Highs: mid 70sF
Lows: upper 50sF

Tuesday: Cloudy w/ a chance of showers and thunderstorms.
Highs: mid 70sF
Lows: mid 50sF

Crap weather here, crow barred a bunch of rocks to make good landings on some highball problems for 5 hours.   The only dry routes around here are in my basement.
