If you hadn’t heard, or experienced it, you might find it interesting that the storm that blew through yesterday (Wednesday) brought over 5” of rain to our Valley! I don’t quite remember what the number was for Hurricane Irene, but it had to be close to that. Fortunately the winds weren’t all that bad, but it was sure what my dad used to call a “gully washer”!

Route of the Moment

Dracula -  WI 4

If you have 60 meter ropes you can climb any of the variations in a single pitch. The left side (4+) is easier than the right, with a fixed pin about 30' up after the initial bulge.
