Hi Everyone, I'm doing a solo trip to NE in september, and am hoping to find people to climb with consistently while I'm there. I was initially looking at climbing mainly at Rumney, but I have heard Farley is good as well. I'm looking to see who is out there, and also, if it is easy enough to find partners if I just show up at Rumney.

For sport I typically send mid-11s, and would be psyched to work anything from 5.10-5.12. I don't place gear, but would be happy to follow some trad here and there.

Thanks in advance, and have a fantastic day!

Interesting how the Subject reverted to Eagle Crag after you moved the thread Al...

Anyways, speaking of Echo (the crag not me)... Profile Cliff, which sits above Echo, is quite awesome too. There might not be a faster drying cliff in NH. Natural High (5.7) and Crystal Crack (5.Eight) are both worth the hike up there, and there is lots of great harder stuff as well...

gah... why the hell does 5 point eight create this on the website (5.8)... ah, I see now that the emoticon is 8 and ) equals 8).... frickin' emoticons....

Echo crag ? Takes very long to dry after a rainy period, mobbed by college groups in the fall and the approach is the worst. Don't go there.

I moved the rest of this topic over to the Climbing Trad section as it was more about the area than getting a partner... ;-)

Ah, Al, I'm just giving you a hard time (and throwing Rime under the bus!).
Rime and I had a great day out, a rare rock day for me this season, and for that I am eternally grateful.  And I was on my bestest behavior, swapping the sharp end against every fiber of my lead-hog self.  Rime was like a fish back to water, and I found out that a belay device works even if you're still on the ground - the rope just has to point UP instead of down.  Who knew?!

Somewhere I have a scan of a painting of Cathedral from across the River, painted in I think the late 17 or early 1800's. There were very few trees an it was all farmland. I'll try to find it...

Those picture/painting are interesting because we can see the evolution of the activity and what made the popularity of the site.

As the park exist since 1914, and people hike cathedral summit at that time and still hike it, can we say that hiking cathedral is too easy??? Hiking to the top is still a great activity. Looking at the picture, we can see that many places is intact from man deterioration. Some trees at the top are still alive after 40 to 50 years and are took in picture with the tourism.

Climbing was the second important activity. As people arrive at the kiosque, they can look at people struggling in thin air and didm't look at those on the prow. People are more interested by some thing close to what they can do than by some thing obviously out of reach. of course, in the tourism, there is also climber. Looking at those more sustain routes...and learning by watching climber. Some thing that we can't do any more because there is too much leaves in few trees. Curisouly, I can cite All who said one day's: i was looking some climber and as they didn't do any thing after an hour, I leaved. Of course, when people don't know how to climb and fall/try/fall a multi number of time without understanding the is not fun.

From the evolution, we can make some management and those action will help the climbing community and the tourism. For example, taking a (sic bear) a beer at the bottom of the cliff, talking with climber and waiting for the last one to be at the bottom was done very often in the past. Talking about climbing to be able to put loud music and drink beer....could not be in the mentality of rock climber. When you understand that for some one the first activity is to drink beer more than practicing how to get out of trouble with a prusick...there is a problem.

Climbing in good style is also very important for me. Follow a leader on some thing hard to know your level and workout during the week to know how to make a movement is in the ethic of trad and should be in the ethic of sport (actually they try a move many time to the execution not always with style). Climber most show that they are master of the rock and don't barely climb to the summit, even if it will happen some time. You are not a fireman because you climb in a ladder, you are a fireman because you fight fire and use a ladder to fight.

That is beautiful and no doubt the original is expensive.
He's pretty generous with the size of the moats in the background. Ha

Your the man. I haven't done that many climbs in a day since I was in my forties just starting to climb and filled with enthusiasm. Now 5-6 climbs is my max and some days I'm ok with only doing 1.

Probably less vert. than one climb up Moby (and a much easier approach/descent)
