The White Mountain Report: Aug 10th, 2017
As I mentioned last week, I love getting out to places I don't go very often. This week I was fortunate enough to get out to North Bald Cap with my friend Matt Bowman. It's a backcountry cliff that I've been to twice before and it's always been a fun adventure. This time was no exception.

Hotter Than Hell -  5.9

This is as nice a face route as you can possibly imagine. The crux is getting into the large niche about 2/3 of the way up and is protected by a bolt. While this used to be done in 2 pitches, belaying at the niche, with 60 meter ropes it's easy to go all the way to the tree ledge.

Quotes From the Ledge:
When I began climbing, the rope symbolized trust. Sport climbing turned the rope into 60 meters of vague social contract. Ice and alpine routes reminded me why the rope is a sacred climbing icon; it signifies the unbreakable bond between partners.
