Ed, we all know the only people qualified to give grammar advice are Tradman and LL.

as for "lucky:" i think he's actually a smart guy who just loves to "f'' with all of you…"

ed "the medium is the message" e

A given.

The question: why?

Well.... Knowing how traditional he is I'd assume the answer to be.....  (Wait for it)...... "Because it there"

Your mind blown or what?

That little belay ledge that sits on the edge of the dike way up high on Whitney Gilman. Small, but awesome place to be.

That is an awesome spot.  Just below the last pitch, you're facing franconia ridge, one foot dangling over black dike.  Second has to go behind you, like you're riding a tandem bike.

Yup, and even on a hot day there is usually cold damp air drifting up from the dike to add little alpine edginess to things.

I've always liked the ledge at the base of the Recompense final corner; view, feeling of accomplishment so far and the anticipation of the climbing still to come!

Keeping in the Pendulum area,,when you rap down to Division of labor, the ledge is nice and thin,,right on the lip. Pretty cool

Grand Finale has a few too..like every one

The sidewalk ledge, below the Pendulum roof. That was quite a surprise on the 1st ascent!
Also, the 4th pitch belay ledge on Intimidation.

The triangle ledge on Sams swan song is nice, but it will probably fall of some year ::) 5 or 6 pitches up in Franconia notch on a spacious ledge what could be better. Definitley better than here where it is flat and hot

the top of P2 of Upper Refuse,
Even the small ledge at the top of the traditional P1 on UR isn't bad.

you may find this hard to believe, but traddy is actually very eloquent and expresses his opinions in a rational, clearly thought out way when he speaks…

however, when he writes; well, not so much...

i think he went to a "progressive" high school where they encouraged students to "be creative…"

i blame society…
