General Climbing / Re: Large groups part 2
« Last post by David_G48 on January 23, 2018, 08:41:31 am »
There will be quite a few large groups up in the North Conway area during this time period. Most of them with guides. Guides have no right to hog climbing routes nor do private parties. That said one must remember that the Ice Fest hype gives guides the opportunity to be employed in an industry with lots of up and downs. They are not a particular wealthy group but do provide a valuable service that I believe the climbing community benefits. So the question becomes how much of an inconvenience would it be to change your dates or location in order that a fellow human being can be employed. If you can change your dates or location with little cost your group you should do so.
I am not a guide nor do I have any desire to become a guide, thus I have no vested interest in the formulation of my opinion. I just feel it is a good thing to allow people the best opportunity to be employed.

Not sure where your coming from.

Thereís Bolton VT quarries. Drive right to it and walk 100 yards. Holts Ledge, Lyme NH. Park at Dartmouth Skiway and maybe a 20 minute hike. Not sure if Kinsman sees any Ice Fest action.

I guess for your sake Iím looking at any alternatives away from N Conway!
Conditions / Re: Mount Washington Valley: Cathedral, Whitehorse, Humphrey's, etc.

Very strange day Monday. Temps in the Valley hovered right around freezing. It went back & forth between snow & freezing rain, with just a touch of sleet at times.

Those Mt Washington weather boyz & girls are predicting "Snow and sleet accumulation around an inch" tonight! Then on Tuesday "Cloudy w/ Freezing rain becoming rain late in the morning. Ice accumulation of up to two tenths of an inch." followed by "Mostly cloudy w/ rain showers likely becoming chance of snow showers. Little or no snow accumulation." during the day. Fortunately temps will drop back into the low 20's on Wednesday and Thursday, but the weekend looks to be warm!
Stay tuned...

Texaco is another good option for groups during this high traffic times... just throwing that option out there.

Also selling some Black Diamond softshell gloves, mens medium. In really good shape just too big for me. Looking for $30.

Can ship for actual cost or meet in NH.

Tuckerman Brewing Company is back this year bringing along tons of kegs of free beer for you all to drink at Apres Hour and the evening events. They generously support our climbing community year after year and we are so grateful. In addition to the Pale Ale and Fall Line, they will also be bringing a specialty keg each night of the brewer's choice. Fun! Surprises! Also, like last year, be sure to purchase an awesome BPA-free, clear cup with awesome logos on it at Apres Hour- proceeds will benefit Mountain Rescue Service!
