Hey Jay,

I really want to help out on Sunday. I can bring a few ropes and put up some routes. But i am pretty wasted right now. I'm sick and have been  on the road. I gotta get up at 4:00 tomorrow to go to Jay Peak. 
Anyway I can offer you a "tentative" assistance. I could check in with you tomorrow if I am feeling up to it.

Well Well Morning folks,

Ice Season:

Ice has been building nicely in the mountains for a couple of weeks now. Super stoked for some great climbing Meetups. Solid Ice is down to about 3,000ft so far. There is drips and smears getting done lower downs but not considered in just yet due to not having consistent protection possibilities.



We have the super experienced Paul Cormier " Humanitarian, Mtn Guide, Mtn Rescue Trainer, Musician, Fiddle Maker, Builder - Carpenter, & Friend" giving us a free slide show and chat about Bolivia. A place all mountaineers should travel at least once in there life. It's got it all there.

Tonight at 7pm sharp! The slide show will take place.

The surge of changing RSVP's is taking place and there still 4 spots left for this..!!!

Anyone willing to help set up should show up about 5:30 to place chairs and tables etc... REI in Reading MA..


Basic's Of Ice Climbing:

I am looking for a couple of Semi or experienced climbers willing to help me out this Sunday up in the Crawford Notch area to work with the next generation of climbers understanding the basic's of playing on ice.

If you can help Me get more folks on the ice its could bring good "Mtn Karma" to your climbs this winter..:-)



Have more, many more to post.

Have a trip or idea?  Sent me a email and I will keep it in mind and if its a common theme then I certainly try to make it happen over the ice season.

One I have on my mind is a low elevation climbing expedition for three days to a remote NH climbing area.. Should be a interesting trip if I can put all the details together. Likely School vacation week..

I have a couple of new gullies/Slides to try.

also Back to a couple Prezi Traverses for this season. (3d-2n) Prezi Weekend will be one of them.

Hum... Can you think of the high point in Rocky National Park.. Beginning of August We all must be there..!

I could type for hours on thing I can think to do in 2014.. But someone has to get to work..
