...climbing today at Rumney was great. Rock climbing that is. Kinda bummed but oh well. There's certainly plenty of water running in the normal places.

Spent the day at kinsman. Good stuff coming in in the main area, climbed around leprechaun and shamrock. Pot o gold is in but still small, hanging by a moment thin. Overall a shadow of what it was last year, but still gin climbing.

Climbed at Kinsman yesterday. Ice pretty good. Folks should stay off pot-o-gold to let it bulld. Highlight of day was watching Matt Ritter doing a new route that he suspects goes at M9. I'm sure at some point we will know more.

That was a treat! Didn't know the etiquette on mentioning it, but since you did, I will add that watching Matt was an education, brilliant climber. 
I suppose we met yesterday then! I was one of the two with Alex practicing multi-pitch skills.

LW,

Too funny that you were there. Honestly I was hesitant to mention at first but felt it's was such an incredible piece of climbing I had to at least give it the little bit of info I've passed along.

I'm sure Matt at some point will provide more details - somewhere. With that even more so he was a really nice guy to talk to and quite humble in what he had just done. I was mighty impressed!

Hopefully with my brief mention I haven't broken any etiquette rules!

Have a great ice season.

Mark

You too! Did you guys climb the pillar to the R of the (I think) leprachaun slab? Good fun.

Brush fires have been a problem in the Rumney area for the past couple weeks. Even with the recent couple days of rain, the ground is still very dry. There was a fire ban until a couple days ago, but even though it's been lifted: please be careful with your campfires!
We came to climb, not to whine.

I'm just south of Concord and we're posted "high" and I believe no fire permits right now. (I think it has to be medium or lower in town to get a permit.)

PSA - it's VICEFest weekend at Kinsman. Tufts University. Fortunately we got a very early start and got five routes in without much waiting at all. By the time we left just about everything had multiple top ropes set up. With that said everybody was having a good time!

I was at kinsman yesterday. It was a zoo!! But a friendly fun zoo. Ice was much thinner than normal but enough to climb on.
