Last Sunday was nice, and I actually managed to spend a full day outside doing classics in the Nears.

Here's Julie rounding the corner on Grand Central.

Ahem...everyone knows that the cliffs are, well, steeper early in the season. In the interests of full disclosure, here's the real angle.

A'ight Tim me boy, fess up.

Do you ever do any other route besides Rhodo?

You're almost as bad about repeating that again and again, over and over, like a broken record, as strat is w/ Minty.

Almost.

I don't know, the "full disclosure" angle has the climbers gear all hanging out at some crazy angle. Maybe if you turned the rock around into some sorta Dangler orientation....

That's because the climber is so filled with vim and vigor on such a glorious Spring-like day in early March that she's racing up that low angle at such a pace that her gear is blowing back in the slipstream.

Or something like that...

Wait... You mean that there are other routes in the Gunks?
No, I think it just happened that that is the only photo op I ever have had in my short leading career.
So what other routes should I try? I've heard of an obscure route called something like "High E", maybe I could bushwack my way up that!
