Sure Al.  Since I took the big one in Huntington's 25 years go it is always rock season anyway.  If the sun is out you can do short boulder problems no matter how cold; the official weather station in the town next to my local bouldering was -16 yesterday morning!   

Mrs. Eyebolter is forcing me into the gym today.  Hoping to flash the yellow route in the lead cave; how's that for an inspiring goal? LOL

Cobalt blue sky today and all the way "up" to 25 after a low this morning of zero.   Hiked out with the two and a half year old on my back, pack in  the front with baby chair and all the crap.  Pretty tired by the time I actually reached the boulders.

31 days off the wine.....lost 5 pounds but still not sending so i'm drinking again tonight.

It might help if I can get on it when the tempertature is actually above freezing.

Rest up and relax Ward.  Go again Fri or Sat.  You WILL send if you are in the right frame of mind.
My guess is you were too "tense" today.  The low temp definitely did not help.
And a baby sitter or a pack mule would matters as well:)

Finally sent my project today....drinking a bunch of wine.  Sun God, V9 I think, haven't climbed V9 or V10 for like 12 years so who knows.

Partner called it off this morning since it was cloudy, windy and a snow squall covering the ground.  But then I found a 1957 silver dime in my change and the sky cleared so I decided to go out alone and give it a shot.

Congrats! I went out today with jbeta and we were imagining we were the only crazies out on rock today. Glad to hear we weren't!

Nice, Ward!

I finally got out this weekend both days for some local bouldering after not climbing for almost 3 months even at the gym. I don't know if I have ever taken that much time off since I started. Did alright for off the couch, but I can feel it a little bit now from the dynos, lol. The snow is almost completely gone here in southern RI and the friction was great today. So nice to be back on the rock. ..need to get my finger power up for something I have in mind at Rumney  :P

4 new FAs this afternoon in my local illegal spot I sneak into (land owned by a bank). perfect conditions  :)
I haven't been up there yet this season, but I would imagine Lincoln Woods must be in pretty prime conditions, for anyone wanting to escape the snow of further north.

So I went out yesterday and did the start without the big boulder at the base....looks like the project has a new life.

I think the window might have closed on my shot this spring to send the HS Egg project.  So freaking close, but I need 40 degree weather not 50s...

Might have to go that route, Mark, but I don't seem to climb as well in the morning.  I can run in the morning but climbing not so much...

Still will be plenty of good days, you will just have to time it right.

Looking to get on Speed of Life now, a north facing glacier so 50's are not a problem.   Did Sun God without the boulder in two pitches today, 40's and cloudy, then the sun came out and soared into the 50's and I wished I had my shorts.  50's and sun is definitely too warm for hard climbing despite all the gym climbers who are waiting for summer to go outside.

I would love to be able to play hookey from work today and tomorrow.  Work sucks.
Speed Boulder, Ward?  If I did not know better, I'd say you are nuts.  You must really own 16 crash pads and intend on deploying all of them in the crash zone.
