This is in pretty great shape! I only followed it once about 12 years ago and it was definitely not in (no ice first 20-30 feet)...

Today I got to lead it. It got a little squirrelly in spots (when it gets tight don't face right) but otherwise was super fun. 5- is accurate as there are pretty good rests between the techy bits but you definitely notice the techy bits.

Get it while it is so good! Video from the day:

Lost & Found / Re: Lost: rope on Standard Route

Oh man... thank you Nick for clearing that out... would have been an eyesore all winter if it wasn't removed quickly.

Katy, if you had half the rope pulled you'd have enough to lead back up on. Standard by headlamp is super fun ;) Hope you get your rope back!

I chopped your rope out of the ice this morning and left it coiled by the trail while working. Someone grabbed it, so hopefully that someone was you. Whoever has it will notice some nice cuts caused by the laborious chopping it took to remove it from inches of ice.

Hope you get it back. I think you may still be able to keep 55 meters of it or more.

Lost & Found / Lost: rope on Standard Route
« Last post by KatyKski on January 10, 2017, 06:59:27 PM »
Hi there,

My rope had to be abandoned on Monday (1/9)evening, at the bolts on Standard Route at Frankenstein due to a knot (I think) preventing it from being pulled down post-rappel. It's an orange 9.5mm 70m Petzl Ariel and if anyone finds it/returns it, I'd very much appreciate it (and owe you big time).

Please email me at ckulakowski@gmail.com if you have it!

Thanks,
Katy

yes, sorry... that is absolutely correct

Albany & Swift it is...

have you been there?
600 yards east of the Saco River covered bridge might put you in the Shure Fine parking lot. Ha Ha

Last time into Winterlude was maybe 20 years ago. I should revisit.

With Ice Fest just a few weeks away, our clinics are filling up fast and it seems that you guys are getting just as psyched as we are! Some clinics are already maxed out with participants, but today's blog post highlights a number that still have space available. Check it out at http://www.mwv-icefest.com/blog/.

Partner Exchange / Partner needed: 14 and/or 15 Jan anywhere in northeast

Looking to get out this weekend.

I'm in Newport RI and have complicated transportation.  Ideally I'd like to carpool from this area or nearby (ie Boston, NYC, or closer).

I can provide my own wheels if needed. 

I can lead 4+/5- and can provide all the group gear.  Lots of experience and very safe. 

Huntington, Frankenstein, the Lake, and NFOP would be my top choices.  Open to anything else. 

Also open to mixed or dry tooling. 

Also open for skiing, but prefer technical climbing. 

Thanks!

Dave
