You are an animal, Ward.
Whitey prolly got disappointed with Farley today.  I was not able to make it out there because of kiddy stuff.

Please tell me the MWV was dank and slimy today, as I talked Troy into bailing on a Willard trip on the basis of a heavy T-shower early this AM at home and radar evidence of rain in NH.  It ended up being pretty nice all day here, so now I'm feeling like a pansy.

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

It started raining in NoCo around 2 pm and rained for a while. Not sure if there was any rain prior to that though. We had a decent amount of sun earlier in the day at home (Effingham).

You missed nothing but the drive.  Today was marginally better, hiked out with mrs eyebolter and the baby.   No climbing but a sweaty hike.  The rock was still wet.   Looks like it will be nice after the weekend as usual.

Somebody found a dry move!

Never rained here at Cathedral till dinner time. Rained off an on all night, then poured buckets from 7-9! Got well over an inch in that time. Pretty amazing...

Something I've noticed over the years- if the road is dry, the cliff is dry. Not EVERY route but many....

What an awesome sight!  Hopefully the weather will be just as good for the cathedral classic

+1. Took a minute to suck in that pic when I came to the home page..
Good times. Good climbs. Get out there, get after it, and most of all enjoy it.
