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.

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!

Gear Exchange / Looking for La Sportiva Nepal Tongue Insert
« Last post by FrodoADK on January 09, 2017, 02:00:22 PM »
I'm looking for a set of the extra tongue inserts that come with the Nepal (Evo or Cube) boots. If anyone has a set they do not use, I would like to buy them.

Apparently the inserts are the same for small ranges of boot sizes. Size 39.5-41 preferred, but would consider buying yours if they are from 41-43 boots.

Thanks!

Brad White and I climbed Winterlude off the Kanc on Friday. It was a real thrash getting in there, even with snowshoes. There was just enough crust to float on top for a step or two, and then you were through and up to your knees! The climb was pretty good, tho as is often the case now, the top out was poor. If you are going to climb it, I suggest going up the middle and then trend left. That way you can hook the tree up there. FWIW I would probably give it another week!

There are several other climbs up there that I did last year, but they aren't IN yet. Apparently someone else was up there, probably before the ice mess, but after the big snow storm. I'd be interested to know what they were doing or if they climbed anything.

I have noticed there there are a number of bolted rock climbs on the right side of the cliff, plus some pretty interesting cracks. I've never been in there in the summer and I would imagine it's fairly humid since the face is somewhat mossy.

The Winterlude area is located on the Kancamagus Highway on a cliff band about 600 yards east of the Albany Covered Bridge over the Swift River, on the opposite side of the road. You can park on the road right now, but not always. it depends on if the plows have winged it out. Of course you can always park in the lot by the covered bridge. It always comes in fairly fat by mid-season.
