The White Mountain Report: Apr 18th, 2019
It's so hard to decide what to do, or what you CAN do outside this time of year. The shoulder seasons can really be hit-or miss. Sometimes you can grab a beautiful day on warm rock on a mid-December or even late March afternoon, or a pitch or two of reasonable ice in early November or mid-April. But it's always a crap-shoot. Having a Plan-B in mind is always a good thing.

Quotes From the Ledge:
Instead of sport climbing I go bouldering. It's pure, and basically impossible to cheat. Bolts can't be used to manipulate the experience. Sure, I sometimes take a thicker crash pad but I still have to take the fall.
