Howdy --

Either of you guys up for this Saturday, Aug 2?

I haven't been out there, but have the time and am interested in checking it out. I can bring the rack and ropes in exchange for some local knowledge.

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.

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 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 fall...by my fault

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