 But you don't need to go all the way to Horton center to get to the climbing. It's .9mi down the road, a few hundred yards up the trail, then about a .3mi bushwhack. From parking to toe of cliff is 1.33mi.

It's exactly .9mi to the Ledge Trail, but my estimate from CalTopo puts the camp about .8mi further, so 1.7mi from parking to Horton Center.

Why do you ask?

well - seems reasonable to want to know the hike-in distance... I've ridden my bike up there several times and always wondered about how far it was to Pine Mt.

How far is the walk from the intersection of the road to the Horton Center? I would have figured that Pinkham B would be pretty muddy right now.

Was up on South Buttress Saturday. Nice and dry, but beware bees spotted...in April. Didn't notice any major nest, but there were a few buzzing about on Hotter Than Hell. Old nest is still in its hiding place on Inferno. Be careful where you jam...

We think alike John. Those were my thoughts after this weekends two new ones. These were both home brewers and that's it. Whereas Rob where I work was a home brewer, studied at Seibel and then apprenticed with a brewer for two years before taking the leap.

With these home brewers I'd bet "their friends" rave about their beers and convince them they should open a brewery. That doesn't always equate to success especially with all the beer that's out there!

Never like Wynkoop! Back in the 90s there was a brewery in Bouder called Oasis Brewimg. Can't remember allot about the beer but it was within walking distance of where my buddy lived!

Try the 830' girdle traverse called Oscars Wilde's Adventure (grade 5.8R, A0, 5+ pitches {140' (5.8, 140' (5.7), 170' (5.8, A0), 170' (5.7), 180' (5.8r) + 30' simo climb+sykes + I swung leads on this.
Full girdle of Echo crag is a fun outing.
Retaining wall along the bike path by Echo Lake (park at Cannon Mt. Tram parking lot, Franconia.
When the new guide book comes out this summer, check out the fun girdle of the Portal Wall, Kinsman Notch:

This place is cool. My first rock of the season. A bit brisk up there... but dry rock!

Pinkham B! Here's the trip report: https://nealpinestart.com/2016/04/11/classic-backcountry-rock-pine-mountain/
