Events & Announcements / Holts ledge is closed to rock climbing
« Last post by tradmanclimbz on Today at 09:06:31 AM »
Heads up. the town of Lyme NH has closed Holts ledge to rock climbing. Access fund and local climbers are working with the town to try and resolve this but untill that happens Holts is closed and it is important to Not violate the closure as that will not be good for the process going forward.

Anyone have any thoughts on why so many trees are failing this year? Or, is it a correlation =/= causation thing? I feel like I have seen more completely uprooted trees than I remember - on the trails as well as the climbing areas. Is it just because it has been so dry?

I saw a report on local news with an arborist who said that the drought is definitely having an effect on trees. in a report I read a couple of weeks ago when I was researching the drought a forestry expert was saying that they are seeing the same thing and attributed it to lack of rain.

based on the amount of water coming down Willeys, when it gets cold it's going to be a great ice year!

Didn't they give just about the same forecast last year? I'm not trusting any "outlooks" anymore.

What's cold and wet?  Is it cold or is it wet? I also like how the weather just disappears across the border :)

A lot seem to be birch trees, like this one, and maybe it was they all died in the last big ice storm (15-20 yrs ago?) and it just takes that long for the roots to rot out?

FACT: 400 million was changed from US currency to other currencies and then transferred to Iran. Obama admitted to the transfer, the only question is why it was done!

It was done because we owed them the money. Iran paid 400M for fighter jets.  The money was held in trust, and the arms deal was signed, but then the revolution happened.  The planes were never delivered and the U.S. has been sitting on the money ever since.  The U.S. owed Iran the 400M plus interest.  Iran had sought a much larger restitution in international court. 

Iran didn't demand ransom for release of hostages. They've been fighting in international court to get their money back for decades. The U.S. did use the money it owed as leverage settling negotiations with Iran.
