Ice & Winter Climbing / Re: Climbs near Tamworth NH?

Nico, I live in Tamworth during the summer months. Let me know if your nephew is looking for rock climbing partners once the hot weather rolls around (unless he's an epic crusher, that is).

General Climbing / Re: cog hotel update

Chris, I'm in to help fight this.  Since my first visit to the summit of Mt. Washington in 1966 (and 1st traverse of the primary summits) at the age of 13, it's been over 50 years that I've enjoyed Mt. Washington and it's ridges & ravines in all seasons and conditions.  I can't imagine adding more blight to the summit area, or additional (and potentially inexperienced) alpine zone visitors who are in most cases unprepared for the conditions.

I would suggest adding to the donation page a Paypal method for those who prefer not to use a credit card. 

Thanks for posting the information and your involvement in the cause.  I have had disappointing personal experience in fighting with small town government, especially when existing restrictions are often waived via variance or special exemptions in favor of income producing projects with potentially deep pockets.

Once an application is received, the flood gates will open.  Many, many more organizations will come on board.  Problem being, that's like entering the game at the bottom of the 9th.  Boards and trustees can create a lot of red tape, and this is Coos County and as such we have a matter of small town politics.  The Sierra Club may express an opinion at some point.

Our expenses will be pretty considerable just getting through the meetings.  If this becomes a superior court case, costs will be even greater.  We're prepared to dig in for the long haul, but can't fund our legal team (and they're GREAT) without support.

I'm curious as to why the NH Chapter of the Sierra Club isn't involved in this somehow? At least they don't appear to be a signatory.

General Climbing / cog hotel update

https://www.protectmountwashington.org/2017/03/conservation-groups-unite-to-block-alpine-hotel-on-mount-washington/

We have mailed a letter to the Coos County Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals in opposition to the Cog's interest in building a hotel on Mt. Washington.  The Waterman Fund, Access Fund, American Alpine Club, Friends of the Ledges, Friends of Tuckerman Ravine, New England Wildflower Society, and Protectors of the Ammonoosuc River Corridor have signed in support of the letter.

Folks, if you're opposed to this harmful alpine development and haven't donated, please consider doing so.  This is an unfortunate case where the cart has to come before the horse.  There is NO question that Presby is pushing forward --aggressively-- and intends to build his hotel.  If our legal team is to successfully represent the public's interest, we need funding now.  We need to prepare in advance of an application as we'll have little opportunity to do so once an application has been received.

Here is a link to our donation portal:

Injuries, Medical & Training / Re: spinal fusion for back and leg pain
« Last post by stevea on March 10, 2017, 09:52:32 AM »
Hi dp

Having had a disk trimming for a badly herniated disc, and multiple injections for arthritis related issues, I would recommend a trimming, over any fusions. I had Dr. Jeffrey Arle do mine, in Boston, and he is a former climber, and has quite a resume in the field.

If you wait long enough, in certain cases, a worn out disc will completely disintegrate, and the joint will self-fuse, due to arthritis.

I have 2 areas in my lower back where the joints self-fused. Doesn't help for climbing and mobility.  Mine was also due to much heavy lifting for 40 years.

Good luck!

Climbing Gear Q & A / Re: do you unpack your kit?

It's discussions like this when i really miss Lucky Luke's boneheaded contrarianism... I'm sure he'd insist, that it's better to leave all the gear in a wet & frozen heap in the back of a pickup truck until its needed again...
