It is a cartoon by Sheridan Anderson. It is pretty old. His cartoons appeared in a number of publications in the 60's and 70's. Many of his cartoons appeared in the book called "The Games Climbers Play."  The book was based on an essay by Lito-Tejada Flores. The book was a compilation of climbing essays edited by Ken Wilson who was the editor of the old British magazine called Mountain.

Wow.  Now there's a dated cartoon.  Probably done about the same time as the illustrations in Robbins's "Basic RockCraft."

As of last weekend, I think that Mike Foley has completed all of the individual moves on Bill Clinton.  Now, can he link them?  It will be a big deal if he can.

For a time Peter Cole lived in Andover, I'm guessing he's probably poked around up there.

Thanks M_Sprague. That's the sort of info I was looking for. Anyone have an update on birds nesting on Cathedral?

When I went to Proctor Academy from 1994-96 I scrambled around there a lot. I know the rock climbing club from that school was active up there.

I just hiked up to the Bulkhead on Ragged today and it's scruffy, but fairly tall. Looks kind of broken and ledgy, but this trip was more to figure out the area. Has anyone climbed there?

Thanks!

The crack on the upper wall is the goal for Saturday!

Caught up to Slacker and his crew on the bushwhack in and had a fun time back at Pine Mt. We climbed Pope on a Rope (5.7), a bit heady getting that first bolt clipped! 1st pitch of It's a Pinkham Thing (5.eight), best route out there so far IMO, and 1st pitch of Contact, fun 5.6.

I'd bet 8 people climbing at Pine Mt. at the same time is probably a record!

At Rumney, currently the high North Westerly crags are closed, but there is no bird activity at the Main Cliff this year so that is open.

Edit to add Jeffrey LeCour's comment from MP: "  "From Chris Martin (Audubon Society):

"The closure currently posted is for Summit, Yellowknife, and Monolith. It probably should say Crows Nest, too. Because the 2016 peregrine nest location has shifted to the east side of Yellowknife, both Asylum and Prudential are currently not posted closed"  "
