The White Mountain Report: Aug 2nd, 2019
Oh goodness - It's August already! And after a good solid dose of summer over the past few weeks, there is a twinge of fall in the air. I know that we have a long time before we should be thinking about winter, and frankly I'm not exactly looking forward to snow removal part of that season, but 50 degrees last night was great sleeping weather.

White Mountain Route Database and Guide
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!
