Years ago I climbed Summer Solstice at Pokomoonshine. I remember struggling a bit leading the 5.9 off width. It was only a month or so later that the one side of the entire crack just fell off. A huge piece of rock.

For the grace of god alright. Glad you're still alive and kickin Mr. Goldsmith.

A few years ago I was standing below weisners dike on cannon.  The first pitch was sheer verglass.  Not hard climbing but my lead partner and I talked about our options over a courage pipe.we then retreated and saw a note from Mr Jon physics saying looks a little too soon for this rout boy's on our sign in sheet.  We ennded up having a fun safe rumney session.  Two days later the news broke that the old man fell.  Made my bung hole tighten so hard I didn't go for a week.  We get lucky sometimes and I hope we learn from them.Good luck and listen to your spidey scentces.

I did post a few more shots of the routes on the TR. If you recognize the cliff and want to climb there email me and I will get you a topo. It is probobly no worse than Cannon...

No worries. I was just curious what general area it was.

For close calls, my only experience is Jolt in Rumney. Climbed it a late afternoon/early evening May last year, last in my group and last that day (as far as I can tell) and next morning it was gone.. That was scary.

My closest call was a few years back. Climbed Pathfinder on WH slabs . Less than 2 days later the huge flake below the tree peels off.... Gave me pause.... But was climbing again the next weekend
