The White Mountain Report: Jun 2nd, 2020
I'm seeing more climbers out on the cliffs and posting about what they are doing on social media. Certainly not what one might imagine at this time of year, but more than I've seen in a while. I'm not saying it's good or bad, just observing. I have to hope that people are taking all this seriously. I am really Jonesin' to get out on the rock and I'm thinking about the best way to approach things. I've been talking with fellow climbers, guides, doctors and others and I do have a few thoughts about how to proceed cautiously to start. More on that soon...

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! All new bolts were placed within a palm-width of the originals. The lone bolt above the block at the belay is there for a directional so the belayer doesn't get pulled off the block if the second falls!

Quotes From the Ledge:
I've tried many sports, but climbing is the best. The beauty of this sport is that no matter how good you get, you can always find a way to challenge yourself.
