So surprised that there's no comments on this very cool, not overt but sweet, local video. The craftsmanship/bouldering parallel is solidly done- a steady application of pressure over extended time with a difficult and uncertain goal being attempted is celebrated with a hard won and emotional success. Nice video, and inspiring effort- and the old school small shop even tempered hand work footage is really nice. This looks like the New England I want to live in.

I've done some night climbing- both solo and roped with/without lights. Ya know- 5.5/ 5.6 stuff.

I cannot imagine for the life of me how it's possible to climb 5.11 with no light- even with a moon.

Not sayin you didn't. Just sayin it's a stretch in my mind.

Its true. Sport climbs.

I hope it never comes out. :) It's already tough enough to park with all the hikers.

Having a big loop of slack in anticipation of a clip is a sign of being lazy and NOT paying attention.  Anticipate.

My partner just told me to gave him a lot of slack because he don't want to be drag down by the rope. I admit that I have done some mistake, trying to remove the tag line from branches make me not going fast enough.

The gap between too much slack and too much belay/rope drag is very narrow particularly at dark, when you don't see your partner. both, the leader and belayer most do compromise. personally, my style is to slow down on a rest and to go as fast as I can in a hard place to stop at a rest. so, my belayer work hard and if I fall as they try to gave me slack...I will have a big my fault

Don't really know what to say to my partner on that case.

If you don't mind I'd like to try to use one as a NEC home page pic. can you send me the originals to al AT NEClimbs DOT com... of course I will give credit as due...

support the request.

adventure climbing was one of my first post two or three years ago. No competition to keep the integrity of the cliff and the solemnity of the night.

I am planning on being there this weekend if the weather plays along, but it is not looking so great atm. If I manage to get my work done, I will try to head up Thursday night, as Friday looks nice.

If this weekend doesn't work out, any time, just let me know when you can go a bit in advance. Rob, shoot me your number if you get a chance. I don't seem to have it in my phone and I can't find your card.

Having a big loop of slack in anticipation of a clip is a sign of being lazy and NOT paying attention.  Anticipate.  And MOVE your body in to give slack quickly - non of this fiddle faddling of pulling it out through the device.  That's in the sport context.  How about when you are x number of pitches up, darkness almost here, storm coming in, anchor is crap, leader out of sight - in that context maybe not short roping isn't the highest priority.  Context.

Yes "pay attention" sums it up - just remember that there isn't one answer that fits all.

There are other ways in that take more time  :(  Maybe ....?  At least there isn't talus to really screw up your ankle

I leave for the Sierras on Aug 10th so I was being a little extra cautious with the ankle but it feels pretty good now. Give me a call Mark and lets get out there.
