The White Mountain Report: Jun 24th, 2016
So, if a tree falls on the cliff, does a climber hear it? Sometimes apparently it does, and last Saturday that was the case. The rappel tree above Brown’s Fist and Lower Refuse unexpectedly fell down in the early afternoon and actually was seen by at least one party. It knocked off quite a lot of debris and also knocked down another tree which as of this morning was still hanging there.

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

Silent Treatment -  5.6

Master climber George Hurley and long-time guide and first ascentionist is known for his unlikely adventure climbs. He was 78 years old when he found this line. As is almost always the case, he didn't clean or pre-inspect the route before he led it, preferring to just start up and see where it went. In this case there was surprising gear in the first 40', but no gear for the final headwall so he traversed a bit right to place a piece in the Three Brushes crack. When Al followed he did a lot of cleaning, uncovering additional placements and stances.

George and Al discussed that there should be a bolt or two in the headwall so the climb could take the most obvious and direct like, but they didn't have a drill at the time. A week or so later Al and Joe and Judy Perez went over and added the necessary bolts.
