Acadia is nice, but you don't need sea cliffs other than Cornwall.

If you have time, Eliminate on Whitehorse is brilliant  A touch of E4  and the rest at sustained E3 or so..really good climbing.  About 600' of climbing.

Just chill.  Forget the hangboarding and stuff like that.  Enjoy being able to just loaf around and enjoy other aspects of life.  You'll get better in time and be back to crushing again (and having to train).

Definitely happy to relax a bit. Would be far more upset had this happened in winter.

Yes I was wondering about the sea cliffs, you do have a lot of coastline but we don't seem to have much info about it in the UK...I am sure I will be frustrated at not being able to climb enough as I only have 4 days but these days I am more into quality than quantity & Cathedral looks stunning.

If you like sea cliffs and you get a chance, you should check out Great Head at Acadia National Park in Maine.

Stu- you should have no problems finding some one. If you can onsight E5, the Prow should be well within your range. I would also suggest Budapest  E4 6A,,really good and maybe Possessed again E4 6A/B

Welcome to the land of paul Ross climbs !   and his son Andy as well

Hi Guys, I have just signed up to your very informative site looking for a climbing partner to climb with at Cathedral ledge whilst on a trip/holiday to New England with my wife (who does not climb).
I have recently got hold of a guide book for the area and their is no way I am gonna fly over the pond and not get my hands on some of your superb looking granite!

I am 53 and been climbing worldwide for close on 30 years I live in Cornwall UK where I run a Guiding service for climbing on the sea cliffs throughout the southwest (Devon/Cornwall/Lundy Island) check out my site at...
www.wall-crawler.co.uk
I have plans to solo some classic routes for a couple of days but I normally on sight in UK at E5 so am Ideally looking for a competent partner to climb a few harder classics, namely The Prow, The bridge of khazad-dum  & Intimidation.
If their is anyone out there who maybe interested that would be fantastic and would surely make my trip!
I will be in the area Sept 28/29/30 & Oct 1st even 1 of those days would be great.
Think I am going to stay at Dry river camp ground nr Bartlett.
Any comments, tips or useful info would be great.
Cheers, Stu.
