Bouldering Season is here!
« on: February 18, 2013, 05:37:02 PM »
Today, warming up (lol) on "Ice Planet Hoth," V0.  The snow topout was interesting.  Cold day but cobalt blue sky.

We did a new highball V4, "The Wookie" to the right out the overhang at the skyline that was finally safe with the deep snow landing.

Looks great, Ward.  Wookie looks great and scary at the same time! :)

There are eyebolts over the top of Wookie so you can TR it first (I did!).  Kind of a hard move going to the lip at the top where you really don't want to fall.  Got out Monday and Friday last week.  Let me know if you want a tour.

Bad storm; was hoping to be roped climbing at Farley on Mar 16.
Too unrealistic?

Parking lot is still snowed in.  We've shoveled out a couple of spaces in the neighborhood; if that is full you can park in the overflow across the bridge.

Sweet day today.  Wayne on Rebel Base, V3, and Ella does the ladder to check out the beta on Monkey King, V9, in the Sun Cave.

Bouldering on Cape Ann is great right now.  Cool ocean breezes, wonderful friction and no bugs.

Ward I have a question for you.  Your daughter's name, Ella, is very unique.  I'm half greek and ella means to come in the native tongue.  Was this known before you picked the name?

No it was not known to me!   Ella supposedly means "light."  It was Mrs. Eyebolter's choice.   Some things you are better off not fighting.

The Mrs is always right  regardless of meaning.  For example -

http://www.babynamespedia.com/meaning/Ella

Our's is Emily (not my choice) but she also answers to Emi.

I dunno Ward.  That flake looks like it might break off!
Sweet looking move coming out of the cave.  V3/V4-ish at that point?
