October 2, 2008

Hi Folks,

I had to drive up to Berlin on family business today so I couldn't get the email version of the Report out on time. Sorry 'bout that. On top of that my sister & her husband were in town all week, just left today, so I didn't get in any climbing at all - not that I could have done much with the rain we've had. That said there isn't much to say about climbing this week, so I'll make this uncharacteristically brief...

Beautiful foliage and unfortunately lousy weather. (Peak in the upper elevations should be at the end of the weekend and in the Valley maybe the middle of next week.) Horrible economic news, pitiful politicians, fortunately yielding entertaining Daily Shows & Colbert Report. Hooray for the Comedy Channel! Hoping for nicer weather & better economy, but feeling doubtful about the latter right now.

A reminder - Next week I start up our 2008/2009 Fund Raiser. It's hard for me to think about asking for money from you folks when money is frankly so hard to come by. However, I do need to find a way to fund this whole thing & thus keep coming back to asking you folks for a part of it. Hopefully you find NEClimbs.com and this White Mountain Report entertaining/informative/useful enough to kick in $20 to help offset the cost & time involved in putting it all together. More on the topic next week.
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective November 18, 2014
Here we go folks. The Ice report is on line for the 2014/2015 season. I'm starting to see some good pix of stuff on the Mountain, the Dike has been done this week and it's starting to get cold even here in the Valley. With another week of consistently cold temps things should start to form quickly. Stay tuned...
Huntington Ravine There is ice in them there hills...

Team Dom Climbing Denali Slide Show / Motion Picture:
Thursday October 9th, Cabot Hall, AMC HQ, 5 Joy Street, Boston. Show starts at 7:30pm

May 21 June 5, 2008, a group of mostly AMC members from New England made an attempt on the tallest mountain in North America. This is the story being told by some of the team members. The team name was chosen to honor Dominic Cartier-Luckhurst, the 19-year old son of our hiking friend Neil. Dominic died in an avalanche near Lake Louise, Alberta on January 7th, 2008.

No door charge although we will have a jar for voluntary donations benefitting the AMC Mountaineering Committee.

New Route at North End of Cathedral:
On September 19 George Hurley, Mike Khan and Wendy Yager put up a new route called Post Mortem (5.9+). Hard to believe that it's never been done, but George can find new lines almost anywhere!

Climb any one of the many climbs at the North End to get to the ledge above the cracks, head over above They Died Laughing and set up a belay. Climb directly up and then stay about 25' right of the Unicorn corner. Continue to the trees at the top. Gear - standard Cathedral rack. Walk off down the climbers trail or rappel from trees. Enjoy..........

BUG REPORT:
I didn't see any bugs the two days I was out in the woods this week. I've got the rating at a 1, but if this keeps up I'll drop it to a 0 soon. Yee-ha!

Mobile Version Of NEClimbs:
Up on one of the Mount Washington Valley's finest crags and want to know what that climb you're looking at is? Or maybe you're on your way up from Boston and want to check out the Ice Report for your upcoming weekend plans. Or more likely, you're at work just want to daydream about your next adventure. Well if you have a smart phone handy, you can get to NEClimbs from anywhere you have cell service. While it doesn't offer every single feature of the site and it's not an "app", in mobile form, it does do a whole lot and is very useful. Here is the live link to the mobile version of NEClimbs:
