The White Mountain Report: Jun 11th, 2015
I didnít get to climb so far this week, too much work and 2 days of rain. Thatís right, I actually do have work to do folks. Occasionally I have to put on my software engineer hat and actually attempt to be gainfully employed. [grin] And I know we all like strings of dry bluebird days, but we actually do need the moisture. The 2 day rain we had was just what the doctor ordered - mostly constant drizzle that soaked in, and didnít just run off. We did however, have one really huge downpour on Tuesday night as a thunderstorm blew through. Fortunately it only lasted about 15 minutes tho, so there werenít any flash-floods.

Our Current Review
X4 Camelots

The new X4 Camelots are BD's latest addition to their 4-camming device collection. They claim that they are great for everything from big-wall to your basic day-to-day trad climb. So do they hold up to expectations, can they be a replacement for the classic C4's, and how do they compare to the ever popular C3's?

White Mountain Route Database and Guide
Route of the Moment

Finesse  -  5.10c

While fitted with 6 bolts, it's hardly a sport route. The climbing doesn't get easy until you're over the overlap at the top! The first ascensionists worked on the climb for several weeks in late November, finally sending the line one morning just as it started to snow. You can put a 1.5 Friend before the 1st bolt and additional gear between the 5th and 6th as well as above the 6th bolt under the upper overlap/roof. Small wires and TCU's may be useful.
