The White Mountain Report: Jul 14th, 2016
Its been a brutally hot week up here in the Valley, with the only saving grace being the somewhat cool nights. Im not sure we are in an official heat wave, but it sure feels that way to me. Ive been out on the bike a couple of daze in the afternoon and it was almost too hot to deal with. I grew up in Florida and Georgia and I think Im acclimated to the heat, at least until we get a string of days like this. [wry grin]

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 youll check out and then rarely use?

Route of the Moment

Lady Slipper -  5.9+

A very nice route which had an undeserved R rating. The route was rebolted in September 2003. The crux move came at a button head which came out amazingly easy! All new bolts were placed within a palm-width of the originals. The lone bolt above the block at the belay is there for a directional so the belayer doesn't get pulled off the block if the second falls!

Quotes From the Ledge:
Breaking into a new area of climbing while remaining safe is probably sort of like practicing religion. There's no best way to do it, and if you screw up, you're going down...
