New Rock Routes / Crawford Cliff
« Last post by DC on May 20, 2017, 03:02:50 PM »
Last week I was up taking a look at the Crawford Cliff, across the street from the Highland Center.  There are three nice slab routes on the main face, which Sykes describes in his new guidebook.  There is one additional short route, located on a smaller face to the climber's right of the primary cliff.  It has three bolts and ends at a double bolt anchor.  Anyone know anything about it and who put it up?  Thanks, Chambo

Hey I'd be interested in some of the ovals for a project and maybe the cams. Can you email me some photos?

I just take a bath in that plasti-dip shit like you would coat an ice tool grip in. Impenetrable to black flies and mosquitoes. Only vulnerable area is the mouth hole, so I swish and gargle 2 oz of DEET. Also, I tape a sausage to my inner thigh before dipping.

DEET, Permethrin, Clothing, Timing.

Honestly the sun-hoody has become my personal insanity saver when they are really bad. Light enough to use when it's hot & muggy out everyone should have one.

I reviewed the new Black Diamond one here: https://northeastalpinestart.com/2017/05/08/gear-review-black-diamond-alpenglow-sun-hoody/

And the classic Patagonia one here: https://northeastalpinestart.com/2016/05/13/patagonia-mens-sunshade-technical-hoodie-review/

I have an Arcteryx one too I haven't had a chance to fully review but I wear it quite a bit.

Permethrin is the BOMB. Been treating clothes with it since jungle warfare training in Okinawa and South America and nothing is more effective!

I rarely bust out DEET because the above two work well but always carry it for vicious days...
