The White Mountain Report: Oct 10th, 2014
Very busy week which has included finally finishing a big software project, some great climbing at a place I've been many times over the years and just revisited, some great riding in the woods behind Whitehorse Ledge and a very fun night of music at McGrath's Tavern last night. I always feel so warm and fuzzy this time of the year; because of all the fall colors I suppose. It's tough to stay inside when it's like this, and I do everything I can to avoid it. We did have a full day of rain earlier in the week that prompted me to finish my web project, which allowed be the time to get out and play. To paraphrase an old canard, I just gotta make software while it the sun don't shine! [wry grin]

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?

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.

Quotes From the Ledge:
Nobody climbs mountains for scientific reasons. Science is used to raise money for the expeditions, but you really climb for the hell of it.
