Hey, the lows are getting lower and the days are getting shorter. It's just a matter of time now. It might be time to bust out the dremel (on all but the screw I let smike use ) and do a pull up or two. I haven't done any since summer camp.

Just think, 23A miiight even be open before the ice starts to form on the Rawdon's (formerly Moore's) Bridge climbs.

[weather geek on] A major weather pattern flip by the end of this weekend. Coldest air of the season by far will be in place by mid next week. In fact a major winter snow storm could usher in winter for the Northeast for end of next week. Its very likely that someone in the Northeast is going to get 12” + from this.

Snow fall potential for end of next week (Darkest blue would be measured in feet)

We'll check back next week to see how I did Can't wait until the news media grabs hold of the idea. If they hype it, it will not come true for sure.

It might be time to bust out the dremel

This is blatant thread drift, but I can't resist. The other day at work we had to borrow a dremel from maintenance. Some guy had a stainless steel cock ring that he'd left on for 3 days. I don't think even the manufacturer had imagined a Dremel could be that versatile.

About damn time. Last year on Thanksgiving weekend I was already skiing on natural snow all the way to the base of Mount Washington.

I beat ya.

The Minty of Catskill ice climbs got climbed at 10:30 this morning. Yea, OK it was on TR; I'll give you the honor of ringing in the leading (or soloing, as the case may be) season.



It was all legitimate climbing until the last little overhang. I Batmanned over that, as climbing over it would probably have pulled down much of the moss that is oh-so-critical to this section during the season.

Game on!
