Daisy chains? Sport climbing? What? Even for new routing I have never had the need for one.

I always liked Rick's original ice grades in Shades of Blue. Easy, Hard, Moderate. I suggest we adopt those for all climbing.

Just think what this would do to the internet, a whole community only able to spew they climb hard, I like it.

My friend rigs his between the legs. I'm far too aware of my inabilities and know one day I'd clip it too tight and take a hard fall, ouch.

The original Whillans harnesses were tough like that and left many a man speechless.

My old friend Rocky Keeler (RIP) used to grade ice as H (Hard), VH (Very Hard) and  PFD (Pretty F..king Desperate)--seemed to cover things pretty well. Also suggested it might be dangerous! 8)

Note to Luke: this is not an objective system; Rocky's VH was PFD in my opinion  ;)

BeEsperanza: in late April/early May the climbing is usually excellent at the Gunks and in Connecticut; NH can be good, but this year winter is hanging on longer than normal so??? Others can better respond as to the Mass areas. As you undoubtedly know, the Gunks and CT are 99% trad areas; in NH the granite areas (around N. Conway) are mostly trad and Rumney (schist) is mostly sport--in April & early May, Rumney's southerly orientation makes it a very popular destination--it dries quite quickly (although seeps will occur). Your dates are a bit early for the usual worst black fly season in NH and they are seldom a serious problem at the Gunks or in CT. Have fun.
