The White Mountain Report: Aug 25th, 2016
“If you don't go, you won’t know!”

That should be my mantra these daze, or at least for Brad White and me. We put it to the test last Friday when we went up to check out the possible rock climbing at Willeys Slide. I know, I know…Willies is best known as the classic beginners alpine ice/snow climbing area. However, there have been a couple of rock routes done there in the past, and it’s a place we both have thought of on occasion. And after all, after you’ve climbed in this area for a combined total of 70 years, you’re always looking for a new adventure.

Petzl Connect Adjust

Petzl has come out with a new device for anchor attachment and to extend a rappel device for rappelling. Does it really make things easier, or is it just another finicky device that you’ll check out and then rarely use?

Route of the Moment

Thin Air -  5.6

Inarguably the most popular climb on Cathedral Ledge and perhaps in the Valley. Plan on getting an early start if you don't want to be in line in the summer. In 2003 the bolts long protecting the traverse were chopped, so be prepared to place gear all the way across. In addition the 3-bolt anchor on top of the 3rd pitch was also chopped so once past the end of the traverse ledge you are committed to finish unless you are prepared to abandon gear!

Quotes From the Ledge:
And what joy, think ye, did they feel after the exceeding long and troublous ascent? - after scrambling, slipping, pulling, pushing, lifting, gasping, looking, hoping, despairing, climbing, holding on, falling off, trying, puffing, loosing, gathering, talking, stepping, grumbling, anathemising, scraping, hacking, bumping, jogging, overturning, hunting, straddling, - for know you that by these methods alone are the most divine mysteries of the Quest reached.
