October 11, 2012

Hi Folks,

This week I don't have a heck of a lot to write about, at least as far as climbing goes, because unfortunately the weather basically sucked almost all last week. Fortunately for everyone around me, I did manage to get out on my mountain bike several times last week as the only exercise I was able to do. That's a sport I can do even if it's wet, unlike climbing of course. BTW I'm not in North Conway right now, I'm actually in a place where there isn't a whole lot of climbing - New York City. I'm actually on a road trip that starts here and will land me all the way down in Macon Georgia in a bit over a week!

Hopefully I will get in a bit of climbing while I'm on my way. I'll try and write about whatever I can manage to do on my trip. I'm planning on stopping at Looking Glass and perhaps Tallula Gorge if I have time. The latter is where I first went climbing and hard scrambling with my Grandfather when I was about 12 with a piece of hemp rope tied around my waist, so it has some real memories for me. But this trip is much less about climbing than it is about seeing friends and family that I haven't seen, in some cases 40 years. But I'm sure I'll do some interesting things and have an adventure or two, so stay tuned...

The North Face Speaker Series Conrad Anker slide shows

TNF Conrad Anker presents: Return to Meru High-altitude mountaineering demands one skill above all others: the ability to suffer. Mount Everest, which Conrad has climbed three times, is the peak that's always in the media, but more challenging mountains rise in the Himalaya, including India's ice-coated granite fang, Meru. Its East Face had defied climbers for two generations. The saga of Conrad's ascent of Meru's formidable east face, which had defied climbers for two generations, begins with a failed attempt in 2003, followed by a treacherous attempt in 2009, when an epic storm froze feet and forced retreat. Three years later, grit and determination brought Conrad and his team back to complete the climb, which Conrad regards as his most challenging.
